I have a few Linux servers that lack necessary
root permissions, and I'm feeling kind of stuck with my options:
- hand-compile packages to a
~/local/folder or some equivalent
- work with sysadmins to get some old version of whatever tool I'm wanting installed, likely never to be upgraded again
- try to roll my own homebrew, not having a clue how to do it
Is there something for a user in my limited state to be able to locally compile and install various localized applications in the same way I use homebrew on my personal Mac at home?
