I’m currently running ArdourVST built from the 2.0 branch but would like to check out the bleeding edge build from the trunk.
Should I uninstall ardourvst first, or can I just download the trunk source and ‘scons VST=1’ then ‘scons install’ and everything will be swapped out nicely?
If I do uninstall, is it really as simple as going into the (previous) build directory and typing ‘scons -c install’?
If I don’t uninstall the old build and ‘scons install’ the new build with a different DESTDIR, can I have both the branch and the trunk version installed concurrently? Is this unwise?
I’m just a little trepidatious because when I ran ‘scons install’ after my first successful build (oh what a feeling ; ) it seemed that it was doing a heck of a lot more than simply coping a few compiled binaries from the working directory to /usr/local/bin. I don’t know what the potential fallout is of doing a trunk build next and bungling it somehow so that things get mixed into some dreadful (and unworkable) concoction.
