Difference Between RPM and Make
I am trying to get my head around the difference between installing programmes with RPM and Make.
I would like to know which is the best to use and why. Up until now I have been trying to stick to RPM as I can easily install and check if a RPM is installed.
Can you check what programmes you have installed using Make? Or do you just keep a note of them.
Also is there a correct procedure for installing make files i.e. correct directory to install them into etc. A set way of doing things? And the same for uninstall.
I have had a look around for some info but at this time of the day it is not quite making sense to me.
