installing from source
i want to learn about installing software from source. other than ./configure, make, make install, what would be the next step? - how to make the software run when the os boot up, without the need to start it manually? - how to make the executable file to run as part of the default command, without the need to go into the installation directory and run it from there?
fyi, i am running debian. i know debian have enough repositories, i just want to learn compiling software from source.
