Talking this is the process how to compile a software (for newbies)

hi, doesn't compiling soruce you've downloaded from the internet drive you nut? everyone here "been there, done that"

sure its nice if there's rpm aviable, but when there isn't any rpm, i guess ./configure, make, make install is what you gotta do.

i've came accross this doc while i was seeking information. and i found this quite helpful when it comes to compile softwares. hope this will benefit you as well
