installing program with options


Hi,

I want to install squid with the options --enable-storeio=null
I am using Ubuntu Server 10.10. Can I install squid using apt-get with options or use another package manager?

Thanks,
jon

If you want to enable options that are not enabled in the package in the repos you will have to rebuild the package yourself.

Make sure you use checkinstall to generate a .deb so the package manager can keep track of it
