I just recently installed tmux 1.7, but now i want to upgrade to 1.8. How do I go about doing this? I downloaded the sources for 1.8 and have them untarred. But im not sure how do you overwrite 1.7 installaion.

The binary will just be called tmux. Is there a reason you aren't using your package manager? –  jasonwryan May 25 '13 at 21:16
im on centos and the package manager does have tmux... it has yum. –  duckx May 25 '13 at 21:50
then use yum (the package manager) to upgrade tmux. –  sendmoreinfo Jun 7 '13 at 21:40
