Howto install Curl3 and Curl4 parallel on a Linux System

This is the Way if you need to install Curl3 and curl4 at the same time on a Ubuntu Linux system.

At the moment it is not possible to install curl3+curl4 parallel on a Ubuntu system, so i got that hint to install a package which have both builds inside.

This package: libcurl4 supports both libcurl3 and libcurl4 API . This Build comes from: this Git Repo: https://github.com/xapienz/curl-debian-scripts

Adding the Package to your system like this

sudo apt-get-repository ppa:xapienz/curl34
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libcurl4

After this it is possible to use both. For me it works on Ubuntu 18,04.02 LTS and now i could use the very old BOINC Package again,.

I know it is not the normal way to do, but i needed to have both curl Version working on my system.

But always take care to whaz you are doing on your system, so it is on your own risk to do so.
