Installing to different prefix's would defiantly be the easiest option as you describe.

2009/3/31 John Hoare <>

Our lab has code that is written for different versions of player, is
there a recommended way to have different versions of player installed
on the same system? (Not running several versions of player at once of

My thought was to compile each version into say /player/player-version
and write some script that will "select" the correct version of player,
either by using symbolic links, or changing the user's PATH and
LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables.

Thanks for your input,
