Software in /usr/local

Contrary to its naming /usr/local/ is a volume mounted from a central server all over the LinuxFarm.

Software installed here is either
  • not available as a debian package (or shall not be converted),
  • not managed by a member of the LinuxGroup
  • needs to be available in multiple versions in parallel
  • pollution from the past

The state of these packages is in general unknown, the Linux Group cannot be held responsible for missing /updated libraries et al.
