How to confirm that an application was built with * plr 8.3 ubuntu, postgresql
This question asks where can I find more information about installing and maintaining installed software. Most software I download with apt-get. I guess this means that the software (postgresql 9.1, Grass, Qgis, R, postgis) has been compiled for my distro.
However, if I am asked to confirm a build, to "MAKE" something, to grab something from a trunk- , progres stalls while I read man pages.
For instance, which man page would I read to confirm this requirement for installing plr:
Joe Conway says:
- R must have been built with the --enable-R-shlib option when it was configured, in order for the libR shared object library to be available.
I suspect if I learn this, then it will apply to other applications/installs etc.
