Sorry, not being familiar with Python, I got confused between - standard 
debain package install; then that found by following quickstart:  after 
that I was left with two versions and I don't understand how to 
reconcile the two.

I installed from the debain instructions:

and got:

root at Vine:~# whereis tahoe
tahoe: /usr/bin/tahoe /usr/bin/X11/tahoe /usr/share/man/man1/tahoe.1.gz
root at Vine:~# tahoe --version
allmydata-tahoe: 1.10.0

Then from this quickstart found different install instructions and a 
different version:

root at Vine:/home/nrb/Downloads/allmydata-tahoe-1.10.1# bin/tahoe --version
allmydata-tahoe: 1.10.1 [master: 2875a9ffc415cd665026419001f2311b4efd44e1]

The executables look very different to me:
root at Vine:/home/nrb/Downloads/allmydata-tahoe-1.10.1# ls -la /usr/bin/tahoe
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 70 May  2  2014 /usr/bin/tahoe
root at Vine:/home/nrb/Downloads/allmydata-tahoe-1.10.1# ls -la bin/tahoe
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4787 Jul  6 09:41 bin/tahoe


root at Vine:/home/nrb/Downloads/allmydata-tahoe-1.10.1# cat /usr/bin/tahoe
#! /usr/bin/python

from allmydata.scripts import runner

I got as far as:

But still not clear to me.  Can you help?

How do I replace the older system installation with the later one 
'built' from the download directory?


Where should I build the later one so that it is not specific to my user?
