I have a separate home partition, so I want to install some software from source in a different hierarchy – not in my user account, preferably in
To rephrase, let's say I have my home directory in
/home/myuser and I want my new hierarchy (i.e.
/bin, /lib, /include, /share, /local, /src nested in a dummy user's directory – say
/home/myprograms so that all the software I install from source or just want to install away from /usr can reside in a separate directory.
I can install programs in that directory, but how do I make those programs available to all users on my PC?
If anyone has a different suggestion for maintaining two hierarchies, please also leave a comment.
