Installed a package via rpm YaST, now overwrite-upgrade to new with source?


That is the question.

I have installed php5 from rpm packages, but now I have compiled from recent source, after install all the libs and devel files taht the compilation requested, it is done. Is ready for do su and make install .

I dont like that it give me a lot of warnings during the compilation!!!!!!, is that normal?? wuch a quantity of warnings??? I normally have zero warnings in my little programs.. LOL . The "good thing" is taht I was able to get the configuration command from php info, and I only add and delete what I whant for make it more like I whant it ....

The question is, I should remove php5... and the other rpm files taht depend in that rpm, or I can delete only the php5....rpm and let the others stay?











Also the same question raise for all the other packages that was installed via RPM (almost all or 99.99999%), when I upgrade from source, should I first delete the RPM??? and all the related RPM that depend on it?? or what should I do???

Warnings are common when you compile software and there will be a lot of them in large packages. Suse has php5 packages, so I am not sure why you need to compile from source.

Because I need a option, and the php info, show taht such option was not in the command line, then, isnt supported .


Tought the real problem is, what If I whant update any package, should I uninstall all the other rpm packages that depend on the package that I delete?

Or I can simply do

./configure
make
make install

For overwrite the rpm files?????


That is the real problem ...

It better to remove the Suse rpms because you may cause conflicts between the version you have compiled and the one thats already installed.
