If I'm installing from source, do I need to keep the extracted tarball directory? So if I download the git tarball. I then do:
tar -xvzf git.tar.gz
This will create a
git.x.x. directory, into which I
cd, then run
./configure etc. Once I'm done with this process, and
git, or whatever is installed, do I need to keep the original
git.x.x extracted directory, or is that just used for compiling the program?
I'm somewhat confused by all the directories, and folders used for programs.
