I should have said this before, but I'll say it now anyway: installing programs this way poses a bit of a risk of some conflict occurring in the future, because the package management system doesn't know anything about the installed software.
The proper (and safe) way to do this would be to wrap the install script up in a Debian package so that the package management system does know about it. The easy way to do this is to use checkinstall:
- Code: Select all
# checkinstall install.sh
It asks you a couple of simple questions and then makes a .deb package and installs it. All you need to do is make sure that the version number is correctly noted (that's one of the questions you get asked).
