This question already has an answer here:
I believe this is probably a simple or even stupid question, but I did not found an answer for I am a beginner of Ubuntu.
I installed my application by compiling and running the source code like:
./configure make make install
Now, I realized what I installed is a newer and unstable version. So, I need to re-install a stable version which is a litte older. I have the source code ready in hand, then what should I do next?
