Ok to start off, I'm still somewhat new to Linux. I have Mandrake 9.1, and am going through similar install issues as the Xime/mplayer post. I had to get GCC working, and I did. I'm trying to install GAIM, but during the process it told me i had to install GLIB 2.0, so I went to go find that. Trying to install GLIB, it told me I had to go find GETTEXT whatever. So I got that, and made it through the 'configure' and 'make' process, but 'make install' process gave me an error.
mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/share/aclocal': Permission denied
I've had problems putting things in that directory before, but didnt think it'd matter until now.
How do i allow access into there?
