To clear my doubt consider I am installing an application 'something' from the software centre. 'something' depends on a library 'libx' whose version is x.0.2. So it gets installed. Now I want to install the library 'libx-x.2.2'. I am gonna download the source files and I decided to build it from the source.
So my doubt is, what happens to the previous version 'x.0.2' when I build 'x.2.2' from source? Also I do not have the -dev version of the library installed already. So what should I do now?
Thanks in advance.
