I have a piece of software which requires a rather new version of curl, newer than the one provided by the debian package repo.
Is it possible to simple download an executable binary curl, place it in a directory and directly access it?
Or will I get in trouble with dependencies?
Thanks and kind regards
curl also uses
libcurl, so you need both. Place it into
/usr/local/lib respectively to not mess with the system package.
Best actually is to compile it from source: build and install curl from source
make install will install everything correctly.
Debian Bullseye Backports would be an idea as well? Isn’t it?
