To date, I have been a RPM user, as I'm still a newbie to Linux. But, I wanted WINE and winehq.com was pretty insistent about compiling source instead of using packages.
WINE was the first tar I have downloaded that didn't produce an error at the end of ./configure. It's happily compiling as I write this. (I'm still keeping my fingers crossed, though.)
My question: as updates to WINE come out, I'm going to want to install and use those changes. Does one usually have to "uninstall" to install new versions of software compiled from source files (tar)? How is that done? (I ask because the README and INSTALL files that were in the source directory didn't mention uninstall procedures...)
If anyone could refer me to a good tutorial on the general principles and steps for installing and removing software from tarballs, I will RTFM. (I like to know the "how" and "why" of these things...)
