- Subject: build vs install
What are the downsides to getting the source code and doing the
build/install myself vs. using a pre-built package other than I'm
responsible for noticing the software needs to be updated?
The latest example is ttcp
http://nuttcp.net/nuttcp/latest/ has 8.1.4
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/nuttcp has 6.1.2-4
If I ever decide to go with the debian package I just uninstall the
software I built and .. anything else that needs to be done before
installing an official package?
