http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, sometimes I just download a tarball and extract the folder to my desktop or my home folder, and I then compile the program for there. Is that bad? Does it really matter where I extract the folder? Or where I compile the program? Can I delete the extracted folder after installing? (Hardware)
