I was wondering if anybody can point out where I can find an advanced guide on installing and uninstalling applications from source code. This would include things such as using ldd, how to make the installed program look for its libraries in a path other than the current path so that you can have multiple versions of some libraries to achieve compatiblity between applications that use the different versions of the libraries so that none of the applications break due to installation of the latest libraries and so forth, how best to deal with dependencies (without relying on package management systems such as apt). Thanks for your time and waiting to hear from you
PS. Also, what are your options if you want to uninstall a piece of software without breaking the dependencies of other applications. Also, how would you go about doing so if you no longer have your makefile?
