Install from source code: Linux: Package Management for CentOS

A user can install software from source code they've downloaded from the Internet. In order to do this, they need the source code itself, development tools such as compilers and profilers, as well as additional source code. Compiling from source code can allow you more flexibility in that you can optimize it for your hardware. It also takes more time to compile a program than it does to install from a precompiled software package. Compiling from source also doesn't give you the protections that cryptographically signed packages do.
