  • Rustup, Cargo, Rustc??

    cargo install does provide different options to change the installation dir (https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/commands/cargo-install.html) but I am uncertain, if there could be accociated issues. An alternative could be tools like https://github.com/mmstick/cargo-deb or https://github.com/iqlusioninc/cargo-rpm that can automatically create packages which can be used for a proper installation /usr/bin/ using your distributions packaging system.
