Software Installations (file structure)
i've been running fc2 on computer 4 about 6 months. i've install software using rpm's and tarballz. my questions, however r is there a standard of installing the software, where in the file structure does one download to, and if one is compiling from where does on do it? i.e. do u download to /usr or to /home. when u ./make do u do it from a specific directory????
could someone pls help?? and give a step by step of the "right" way to do it?
