Installing Libraries

Hi,
How do you install a library properly?
Just make it and put it in /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib ?

Yes, just put it in /usr/lib (saving an older version before ;-)
If it is a shared library, it may reside anywhere, and you just have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH properly for the desired application.
