This directory contains snapshots of some software packages that I put together for some reason. These have not been thoroughly tested, so use them at your own risk!
The tar archives containing source code can be unpacked and compiled in a directory of your choice.
Most of the tar archives containing binaries are intended to be installed by just unpacking them in the right place. The right place is /usr/local, so a command like
should be enough. The packages can be installed in other locations, but you might have to set environment variables to point to that location, and/or add the bin/ subdirectory to your path.
tar -C /usr/local -zxf xxx.tar.gz
