I've been building a lot of software from source as I've been wanting to learn it for quite a while now. The following happens:
- Download source files (normally a
- Install dependencies (normally a bunch of libraries)
- Configure, build and either install or just run
I am still confused as to what files relate to what etc. so my question might appear as stupid.
I have 128gb of ssd hard drive space. This is not a lot for me. I need every single bit!
When building from source it compiles the file into a so called dist folder which can then be run (or installed). So my question is:
- As I assume the source files are not needed since I built the software, how do I remove these files safely?
