I've installed darkstat via: "apt-get install". I then downloaded the darkstat source code to make some changes to it using: "apt-get source darkstat". I made my changes, then I used the command: "sudo ./configure --with-chroot-dir=~/my-darkstat". It configured and then I used: "sudo -i" then make to run the make file.

I didn't see any changes to the actual program though. Am I just doing this horribly wrong or is there a different way? I would love to make some custom changes to packages but obviously it's all for not if I can't get those custom changes to install.
