I'm a little bit lost in Linuxland.
1. What is the common installation directory for programs? I have seen tutorial where everything goes in /usr/src, but I know there are other tutorials that say put everything in /usr/local. When do I know when to use which folder for my installation?
2. Can I remover the .tar file after I have finished uncompressing it? I assume it's the equivalent of a zip file in Windows. What's the command to remove a file?
3. What version of Java does Slackware 10 ship with? Do I need to install Java again before going ahead and installing Tomcat?
That's it for now. I'm sure there's more to come later. Thanks.
