I need to compile something. it depends on some packages. But package is old. What to do? Compile? So how to compile that everything installs correctly.
For example I have dependency package: libsdl-mixer1.2-dev(188.8.131.52) which is old.
So I need to compile source code
Is this ok? Will old package reinstalled with compiled one? Will package manager understands that I'm using new version?
Other applications installed via Package Manager, which depends on that package, will use new compiled version?
