http://unix.stackexchange.com – Possible Duplicate: Non-Root Package Managers I work extensively on a remote system where I do not have admin rights. However, I am allowed to install my own binaries and programs under my home directory where I have about 10 GB of space. Unfortunately doing this manually for many packages is becoming increasingly tedious. I am wondering if I could use a package manager like apt to install/update/remove local installations. Is this feasible? Are package managers designed to support this usage? What are the steps I need to take to install apt as my local package manager? (HowTos)
