- Working as a hobby developer on Debian/Jessie64
- mostly C++ but also assembly, python, java, c, c#
- like compiling programs on my own like
- looking into other's source
it results into many packages(libraries/tools) installed and so making the system slow (look for a library in a folder with a few hundred libs is faster than a thousands of - same for bin)
how do you keep your machine clean? remembering packages and uninstalling (complicated, time consuming)? apt-get autoremove? also removes additional packages not "needed" but useful
using virtualbox for a dev-machine?
is it possible, to tell gcc to look for headers on a different machine and the same for ld for the libraries to link?
with "slower" I mean that programs (browsers, IDE) start a bit slower (not measured)
I already use vagrant for working with LAMP stacks or other things I definitely don't want on my machine
Didn't think about chrooting for a dev-env, definitely have to try this.
