LXer: How to Install Packages from Source on Linux

Published at LXer:

Most modern Linux distributions enjoy standard repositories that include most of the software youíll need to successfully run your Linux server or desktop. Should a package come up missing, more than likely youíll find a repository you can add, so that the installation can be managed with the built-in package manager. This should be considered a best practice. Why? Because itís important for the integrity of the platform to ensure the package manager is aware of installed software. When that is the case, packages can easily be updated (to fix vulnerabilities and the like).
