Will this work for a whole program? Like if I'm installing gimp onto my computer manually and want to put it into the menu? The file that has to run is executable script, but it needs the rest of the files in the programs folder.
I'll take a look at the rpm thing, I did a quick skim and realized it's something I should take the time to sit down and actually read haha.
I can recommend learning how to package RPMs very highly.
Thanks Neal, I will begin learning that! It might take me a bit longer with all my classes right now, but I really been missing learning this. I'm going to try and make some more time for my open source life, no online community is as welcoming or willing to teach as this one!
What would you suggest is the best place to start learning to package? I noticed the posts in the forums describing how, is this the best palce to get started?
-Thank You all for teaching me so much!
