Distro neutral script
This is an idea at the moment, mainley aimed at developers. If you have an install of QM already you might want to quickly setup multiple QM directorys/version on one server, to allow you to play around.
To achieve this a distro neutral script could be written to se the current dir of QM to be the current running one.
- Move out QM.config in /etc, place an apropriate one for current dir
- check for groups, qm, and qmdev, create if missing.
- move or link to /usr/bin/qm (and other binarys)
This should be non destructive and able allow reinstantiation of previous installs.
