I am trying to install a library manually, well actually just put it in a sensible location preferably in my
I have a
lib[...].a file and a bunch of headers pertaining to that static library file. If I look under
/usr/lib/ I see only
.so files, likewise for
/lib32/ etc. I figure I could chuck it in there, but is there any place where it can get cozy with other
.a files or is that as good place as any? I'm not an library expert, but I'm pretty sure it won't matter functionally, but I'd like to learn conventional best practice. Also, where is the standard place to put the headers?
