SUCCESS - finally !

Here is what supposedly works according to README www.bluez,org
/configure
make
make install
make clean

This is what REALLY works

/configure
checkinstall

checkinstall actually installs the package and provides nice tracking feedback while doing it
found by accident !

I don't know about you , but I find it frustrating in a way , when it is only chance that leads to a solution
after hours ( or days ) of grinding away .
It makes me wonder what other priceless bits of info are lying undiscovered , simply because they are hard
to find by intelligent searching .
Unhelpful titles .... lack of good indexing ?

wizardfromoz posted something that is a good example of this ( but I can't find the thread now ) -
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta

It has a table of package management commands showing how they vary across different distros
.... a very handy link indeed .... which I have now bookmarked !


Anyway , good work , and thanks for sharing ( especially the solution ) !
