Install from Source?
I know what it means, and I've read several tutorials on how to do it, but everytime I install from source, something seems to go wrong. Can anybody help me out? Give a step-by-step thing, or maybe a link to a good site. Any help is appreciated, thanks.


*EDIT: I am looking at a tutorial I found here on, accept I think it's, you can post other tutorials and whatnot just to give me an idea, but for now I'm going to check this out.

What seems to go wrong? What are you trying to install that you can't apt-get with debian?

It always says, after I run it, command not found or something like that. I'm trying to install MAME also, I did not find that with apt-get.

it says cmd not found because you must give it the full address. so for firefox you would type something like /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox or wherever it was installed. the easiest way to find out would be whereis mozilla-firefox or slocate mozilla-firefox, otherwise you can link firefox to /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox and be done with it.
