First of all, I'm sorry if this is not the place where this should be asked.
I'm looking a way to install multiple versions of a package. Is that possible?
Making things crystal-clear, I need php 5.3 and 5.4. I'll also need php 5.x when it get's out and I'll need to keep the 5.3 and 5.4 versions.
I know I can compile them and set the prefix to different places (in fact, that's what I'm doing now), but I was wondering if I can do that
It can be done, but requires some work and familiarity with abs/aur/makepkg .
Basically you install the separate versions in different locations so they don't conflict with eachother.
You'll have to configure the applications then to use a specific version.
Chekc the gcc* pacakges in aur for examples on how this is done.
Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
Thank you, I was thinking something like that would be needed. I'll just stick with my current way (compile it myself and install it)
