• The system administrator uses the ~/progs directory to download and build software.

  • We expect the build-essential package:

apt-get install build-essential
  • Software is either installed into

    • /usr/local or
    • /opt
  • If feasable we use diet libc for compiling.

  • if feasable we use slashpackage, so we also get software installed into /command.

  • Webthings like roundup, ?PmWiki, ?Wordpress, ?Drupal, ?Roundcube are installed into /srv

  • We assure that these directories are chmod 2775; chgrp staff, so that the operator can install software to them without elevated privileges.

    • /opt
    • /usr/local
    • /srv
    • /command
  • If we use Perl modules we expect cpanm to be installed.
