How can I keep track of what I install in order to uninstall it?
I am using Slackware 9 and it has a very useful tool that allows you to install/uninstall complete packages. But you have already compiled packages, of course.
However, now I am faceing my first installation starting from the source code (I am trying to install Mplayer, and the .rpm packages I found don't seem to work even when converted with rpm2tgz).
The instructions I found are just to use the command
and all should work.
My question is: which file are created in the process? How can I keep track of what has being done to my system, in order that I can undo it if I don't like the results?
I realize it can seem a stupid question for an expert, bt be patient, this forum is for newbies...
