I’d like to know if there are guidelines on this subject.
Specifically: i want to try the MPLabX compiler from Microchip, it is distributed in a tar file , when unpackaged, an sh script is presented, however, attempting to run it requires root privileges.
[hao@wendy:~/Downloads]$ ./MPLABX-v5.45-linux-installer.sh The installer needs to be run as root
Before doing that i’d like to know if there are any chances of breaking something, and then, if there is a way of wrapping it instead on a nix package instead of running the imperative install script.
I don’t know if the installer runs a graphical interface, im guessing that might be a problem to make a nix package?
So i perhaps i should check that first running in a virtual machine maybe, i’ll post what i find.
Any links/information is appreciated, thanks
