How do you install from source and precompiled tarballs?
Ok I know that if you download source for a program you run
unless its already precompiled at which point there are shell scripts that you can run. I have Assault Cube which came that way and I got it to work.
But, most of the time, I type ./configure and nothing happens...
Or ./configure works and does stuff, then make does nothing...
I am always hitting a terminal wall or something.
Or if its precompiled, as in the case of Daimonin, it runs and makes a .daimonin folder that has this in it...
Daimonin (config file)
distro (txt file has the word debian in it, I know this is from the installation where I told it what distro I have.)
I just don't know how to debug this stuff. It would be great if someone could point me to a complete how to for installing from source and/or debugging for this.
Thanks in advance.
