Delete working folder/directory?


In following a tutorial I found on the internet, I was instructed to compile (for the first time). My question is once done, how do I 'clean up'?

Here is what I did:

Code:
cd /usr/src
sudo mkdir ffmpeg
sudo chown `whoami`:users ffmpeg
git clone git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg
cd ffmpeg
./configure
make
sudo make install
Here is what I HAVE:

attachment




What, if anything, can I delete now that the compilation/install is complete ... the entire ffmpeg folder or ????

Thank you in advance.

I think so, or cd to that directory and run make clean, in case you need to recompile for any reason. Depends on whether you can spare the disk space.

WOW, ... fast support .. thank you. Well, don't think I will need to recompile ... so delete entire folder then.
