Thanks for getting back to me so quickly on this.
I thought the deb file on Alpine website was meant for all Linux users who
can use debs. I assumed that included Ubuntu users.
You ask, "Does the alpine Makefile create "make uninstall" as well as
I am afraid I don't even know what that means. Is "make uninstall" a
file? Or a command I use at the command line, as is? Or with some other
file as its target? Can you tell me how to find out, and then the
procedure to get the new version installed?
I assume I'd get the source file off the Alpine site? I'm seeing several
choices at the top of the page under "Source Download."
After I get whichever one of those is correct, what would be the
procedure for getting the new version installed by apt-src?
I am grateful for your generous help with this. Thanks a lot.
