I had to run a program that is not in pkgsrc
While being pretty sure i should install it in /usr/local
or /usr/localbin or some such.
I wanted to be sure it was correct, but i couldnt find anything
i tried man hier:
but reading it several times and searching for /local
didnt give anything.
I read the guide and found this section
Section 4:15 installing software packages
And i think that either in this chapter or one after,before
there should be a section on installing "local" software
That is from 3rd party sources. (not pkgsrc).
There is also a discussion on bsdforums: here
Also i read somewhere that NetBSD makes a directory for each program?
Cant seem to find it right now?
But now i install my program (genext2fs)into /usr/local/
or should it be /usr/local/genetx2fs/ ?
So shouldnt man hier mention /usr/local ?
like this maybe
local for installing software local to
the site, from source or 3rd party
and maybe put that into the guide near or in chapter 4.15?
