where is installed software that installed from source code?
for example:
when I'm installing samba from source file:
1-extract it on "/home/USERNAME/source"
4-"make install"

Question:can I delete "/home/USERNAME/source"?
Question: where was installed samba?

In the general case, if you don't specify another location to configure, then the software will be installed in /usr/local/..., e.g. /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/doc, /usr/local/share/... etc.

I can't be certain that this is true of the Samba source, but I very much expect so.

Yes, the source tree you used for building can be removed once the software is installed and working.
