for the new college year they've set things up fairly nicely here; SuSE 6.2
with a decent NFS/NIS setup. could be a lot worse.
anyway, i want to build enlightenment from tarballs, which means i'm going
to have to build the libraries (libjpeg,png,tiff and friends, imlib) as well
and put them in my home directory. i don't have root, and i want to be able
to use this from any linux lab machine (there are 200). so, in a nutshell,
how do i make sure these are looked for before the system-wide libs by ld or
whatever? i'm hoping i just have to stick a path into some shell variable.
actually a little bit of an explanation about how this (library
loading/linking) works would be *really* nice, but i don't want to push my
luck. it's probably relatively simple though.
coding in java all the time does nothing for your knowledge of unix/libc.
