    Perhaps use checkinstall in the final step to integrate the final sox package into the Ubuntu package management system?

    Hi Andrew


    to replace sudo make install ?

    can you explain a bit more please? I have seen this before but do not quite understand how it differs



    ha ok i kind of understand but still why is it better?


    for this reason?


    Usage

    Instead of
    sudo make install

    you will use
    sudo checkinstall

    When called with no arguments, checkinstall will call "make install". If you need other arguments, they can be supplied:
    sudo checkinstall make install_package

    The installed package can then also easily be removed via Synaptic or via the terminal:

    sudo dpkg -r packagename

    Checkinstall is the 'budget' way of creating a debian package, it is a little limited but perfect for packages for use on your own machine. It allows for clean removal as well as automatic updating from the Ubuntu Repositories. When you investigate the options it becomes a very, very useful tool when compiling.
