Before I get in trouble with the admins, I did a search on compiling and installing. I'm not new to Linux, just some things I never learned. Either I'm doing something wrong, but it looks like I'm the only retard here that does not know how to compile and install. Well, I'm not asking, but if anyone can steer me in the right direction, say like a web page or something, without spending any money, I'd be grateful
You won't get in trouble with the admins for asking a question that's been asked before. If an admin answers your post, (s)he may tell you it's been asked before and point you to the Search box or provide a link where the question was answered in the forum. It's just that the responders here may get a little weary of answering the same questions repeatedly. That's all. You certainly want to get answers.
In that regard, a forum search and an internet search will go a long way towards that quest for an answer. But, you may not find one after searching the forum and the internet. Or, you may not understand the answers you get. In that case, fire away. Just explain what you've done to look for an answer, or what you don't understand about what you found. Please read this
for a more complete explanation.
In regards to compiling, see this
for the shortest and simplest answer as to how to proceed. You might also do an internet search for "Linux compile from source". In addition, you could post your question in the Advanced Users Section
of this forum. If you provide specific information, such as what you are trying to compile, the URL from where you got it, what you've tried and what errors you're getting, it is highly probable you will get some answers and learn something in the process.
Most of us realize we were newbies at one time, and that, to some extent, we all still are.
