installing libraries

I have configured and made a library, now how do i make another installation recognise this without having the root privileges (to do make install)?

Depends really.

Some applications will allow you to specify the path to a library in the configure script. Something like ./configure --with-library=/home/me/library

Another option is to edit the Makefile to make it look for your library in your home directory, or wherever you compiled it.

You can also create a /usr environment within your own home directory, so relative it would be /home/me/usr and install things there as if it were a 'chroot' environment.

I'm sure there are more ideas, but I just woke up and that's probably where'd I'd start with something like that
