I've got two questions regarding compiling from source:
1. I usually untar sources in my ~/downloads. Then I compile them (.configure/make/make install). Afterwards I just delete the folder. Is that correct? Should I run 'make clean' before - if so, what would it do?
2. How can I uninstall then such a package? I assume I would have to enter the original directory where it was compiles (but I usually delete them after the compilation).
thanks for any help
