I already managed to compile and install python in my home directory. As you would expect, all I had to to was to
. /configure - -prefix=$HOME/Python
I noticed, that you also have the opportunity to specify certain subdirectories to the prefix dir. E.g. “Binaries” instead of “bin” or “Libraries” instead of “lib”. Of course this is pretty non standard and definitely not neccesarry. But I would like to do it anyways because it just fells more tidy for me.
The problem: Giving options like
--bindir=$HOME/Pyhton/Binaries does create the directory “Binaries” but “bin” is also created, containing pip. The same goes for “lib” and “include”. Did I miss anything that’s not in the options for. /configure or do I have to go deeper and edit even the Makefile?
Thanks in advance
