Reinstalling source files


Hello,
I installed elinks from source but would now like to reinstall in to make some changed to the configuration file. Do I just run "./configure && make && make install" again?

If you want to make changes to the elinks.conf file, just open it up in an editor and change what you'd like. If you're talking about re-compiling elinks with different features, then just run the ./configure command with a "--help", to see what options you have. Add them to the ./configure command, and when it's done, run the "make && make install", to re-install the new elinks that was compiled with the options you'd like.

Thanks, just what I needed to know, have just changed some options and reinstalled and all works fine
