Hey everyone. I'm using the Ubuntu server for some time now. Everything is working fine, installing packages is a piece of cake. Usually I use aptitude or apt-get for package management. But...! There are cases when I need to install a package from a source. No problem usually I do ./configure, make install and so on. But...! There are also cases I want to upgrade a package I manually installed from a source. This is where things get blured :).
My question: What is a proper way to install custom packages. I'm thinking of install/uninstall process like on Windows. I would like to remove all the package files after the package was manually installed using make/install command.
I know there is a script through which you can run make commands and later it knows how to remove the package and all related files/paths but can not remember the name.
Please help! Thx 10x!
