A basic idea about installing
I am familiar with the installation of packages on Linux (the configure, make and make install ritual). One question though.
After I make and install, does the complied binary necessary go to /usr/bin or does that require some switch in the make tool? Basic confusion is, suppose I downloaded a tar.gz, uncompressed it in /home/
<user> and installed it, there are a whole load more files that get generated in this folder in that process. After I finish installing, can I safely delete the folder or it is possible that some of those files are used by the installed program?
Help the newbie,
