    Checkinstall utility


    Hi guys, I recently started building Slackware packages, and I had some questions about checkinstall. When I execute it, will it automatically create a package with the man pages and the info stuff on the right spot? So /usr/man and /usr/doc? Or do I have to specify that in the ./configure options?

    Thanks for enlightening me .

    If you want them to have in /usr then you will have to use the option --prefix=/usr, otherwise they will be installed into /usr/local.
