Installing a package compiled on a different machine


Hello,

I am using Debian etch with 2.6.25 kernel. I need to install a package on my system, say for example A, on which I have some space constraints (even 5 MB is big constraint).

I downloaded the sources of the package on another system, say for example B, and then installed all the required libraries that were required by that package by running apt-get install. Then I just did the regular:
Code:
.configure
make
make test
make isntall
Everything went fine and I was able to install the package on my system B. Now how can I install that same package on my system A without compiling from sources on system A as I have space constraint on it.

You must compile in B for A (architecture, etc)
./configure --help

There are many good tutorials on the Debian site

You can also build custom Debian packages

Best

Actually Machine A and B have some architecture. The difference is that Machine A has space constraints as I use it for a specialize purpose and that package is necessary. I have space on A just sufficient to install the package.
