None Best way to install patch using cmake

I have a working build of Geant4.9.6 on Ubuntu that took me a while to get so I am slightly loathed to install the patch, but...

I have had a look through the forum and documentation and can't seem to find anything detailing the best way to install the patch. Perhaps I have missed something obvious?

Right now I have:

/geant4.9.6 /geant4.9.6-build /geant4.9.6-install

I was thinking to make a copy of /geant4.9.6 which I will call:


Then I uncompress the patch into this folder, replacing existing files and folders where necessary.

Then I mkdir /geant4.9.6.p02-build and then run cmake pointing to:


Then install into geant4.9.6.p02-install? This would mean I wouldn't wipe my working version and I would have a quick way to compile programs from patch and non-patch?

Or is it better to wipe over the existing install and just redo cmake, make etc?
