This question might be overly simple, but I just want to make sure I’m not falling into some anti-pattern regarding package installation.
I found the official installation instructions; however since what’s available is a tarball and I already have the
golang-go package installed via
apt, should I simply remove golang-go, or what?
If I leave
golang-go in place and just unpack the tarball according to the instructions, then the older version of
/usr/bin/go) is still first in my PATH lookup, so this doesn’t seem to be a workable option.
Is there any drawback to uninstalling
golang-go and just using the tarball only (as per those instructions)?
