hi everyone,

if i update a package by compiling(make) and installing(make install) it from source, could this later interfere with yum and cause inconsistencies if a newer version is released and is available in yum repos.

for instance i have wine 0.9.32 installed and want to update to 0.9.34, rpms for 0.9.33 or 0.9.34 haven't been released as of yet.

yum won't update a package if it's not in the rpm database, so if you install via 'make install' yum won't be aware that it is even there

(make sure you remove the old package before installing the new one)
