Where should I install my application
II have developed a deskttop app on Windows, Im now testing it on Linux (Red Hat Fedura 2)
It some time since I used unix in any form and I was wondering what the current practise was for installing applications.
all seem to me to be possible locations
I used to use something called pkgadd but it doesnt seem to exist anymore I guess this has been replaced by RPM, although nothing Ive installed with RPM has turned up in the desktops Add/Remove Programs yet.
There also the issue of wheher the user need to be logged on as root or not.
Also unix used to install progs in /usr/bin and config files in /etc. But my prog is currently installed as one thing, does this matter.
If someone could point me in the right direction ?
