I've got a few questions baout packages. I'm using Suse 10.0 OSS. If I install a package from binary-rpm it will be detected as installed if I search for it with e.g. Yast.
I mean, when I start Yast-software and search for that package yast will show me that I have installed that package.
When I make e.g. libraries from source, meaning ./configure make make install then Yast does not show me that I have installed that package. So if I want to install a package from rpm that depends on the package i built with make I cant install the rpm. How can I tell Yast that I have installed that package from source?
another question: Where can I find a good tutorial about the files config.in, config.am, configure, make, make.in, make.am and so on. I mean the files, that are used to build the sources.
And a third question: In which directories does pkg-config look for the *.pc files? Where can I get *.pc files, wenn I did not install the package from rpm but from source? fltk2 e.g. does not have such a *.pc-file
I hope you can help me
