Is it possible to update a self-complied package via up2date?
For example, I download the Apache source code and do the usual ./configure, make and make install, does the RPM repository gets updated too? Will Red Hat up2date work for that Apache that I have just compiled and installed?
Iím concerned about keeping my system updated.
Do correct me if Iím wrong.
Each package is dependent on other libraries that might be installed via RPM or self-compiled. In the Windows world, a software can be updated easily by just downloading a patch. I donít have to worry about the underlying libraries because itís proprietary. The software makerís update will update the software, including its libraries.
But in the Linux world, itís open source.
How do I keep all these packages updated? *confuse*
up2date will be great if my self-compiled package can be updated too.
