    Thumbs up Re: source installation

    I auto reply :

    Usage: apt-mark [options] {auto|manual} pkg1 [pkg2 ...]

    apt-mark is a simple command line interface for marking packages
    as manual or automatical installed. It can also list marks.

    Commands:
    auto - Mark the given packages as automatically installed
    manual - Mark the given packages as manually installed

    Options:
    -h This help text.
    -q Loggable output - no progress indicator
    -qq No output except for errors
    -s No-act. Just prints what would be done.
    -f read/write auto/manual marking in the given file
    -c=? Read this configuration file
    -o=? Set an arbitrary configuration option, eg -o dir::cache=/tmp
    See the apt-mark(8) and apt.conf(5) manual pages for more information.

    Thank you

    Re: source installation

    I re auto ask because it doesn't seem to work when source installation, just with packages.

    Re: source installation

    Have you tried installing your source with checkinstall? I am unfamiliar with apt-mark, but it might work.

    Does anyone know how to make ubuntu aware of an installation from sources ?
    It would help if you would give some details such as which software you compiled and installed, and any terminal output from ./configure, make, or sudo make install

    Re: source installation

    Hi

    Very thanks for the tip !
    It works fine, it even builds a deb package from the sources : just great !

    This was to install the last version of samba, I'm still dealing with a dependency issue (libwbclient0) but it should just do.

    Thanks again.

    PS : apt-mark can't work as it tests if the package is installed before applying mark, the dog bites in own tail..
