Re: [Enigma-devel] Compiling

Hello Raoul,
Usually, /usr/local/ is the prefix for user-compiled software.
But it doesn't really matter.

/usr/local suffers from being shared among all the user-compiled
stuff. With his approach of installing it into /opt/enigma, he can
just rm that dir later on (for example when the Ubuntu enigma package
is updated to the Debian unstable one :-)).

A different, IMHO nicer, solution would be to install with
and then use stow to link it into /usr/local.
Removing then is calling stow with the remove option and killing the directory.

Or you just build your own packages. It's not particularly difficult,
unless you're trying hard to re-use as much as possible of the
existing system.

For Ubuntu, he can maybe just use the packages from Debian unstable
(http://packages.debian.org/enigma/) or at least download the sources
and compile them for Ubuntu himself; that should work without user

best regards,
Erich Schubert
