14. Compiling and Installing software from source in Linux

By: Jason Lambert : 2011-03-02

Description: Some software is distributed in "Source form". This means you download a file containing all the source code for the application you want to install, unpack it, and compile it on your system. Compiling is the process of turning the source code into an executable binary. The common myth and newbie assumption is that this is very hard todo, or it is only for programmers. Wrong. It is a fairly straight forward process, and you will find that a lot of software you install will need to be built from source.


15. Installing RPM's using the Redhat Package Manager in Linux

By: Jason Lambert : 2011-03-02

Description: Redhat RPM's offer a flexable and easy method to install new software. Software installed from an RPM package differs from compiling from source in a few ways, but the most important one of all is the software is already compiled for you. Essentially all you are doing is extracting the pre-built binaries and copying them to their pre-selected destination. RPM's are files that have a ".rpm" extenstion. The good point about RPM's is installation of new software, and maintaining the software currently installed is much easier than doing so for individual packages compiled from source. The downside to RPM's is that you dont have as much choice about where software is installed on your system, how it is compiled, and how it is configured.


16. Installing using Debian apt-get in Linux

By: Jason Lambert : 2011-03-02

Description: Apt-Get is a wonderful package management system for Debian GNU/Linux. Apt-Get, like RPM make installing and managing installed software easy, and once again has the same disadvantages that binaries are pre-built and cannot really be fine tuned to your system very well. I really like Apt-Get becuase of its automatic software download and upgrade mechanisms, and unlike Redhat doesnt keep trying to sell you something, and doesnt try to limit your use of the system.
