I am new to the Mac philosophy, but I have been using Ubuntu since a while. Now I am using Mac at work, and I have to install a few programs, not apps, from source code distribution.
I did try to
gunzip a folder in
/usr/local/ but it says
permission denied. Same result with
su command just freezes.
/Users/ a better place to go? I suppose I do not need permission to write in there, right?
Where should I install new software (from source code distribution) on a Mac?
