Could we please have a forum for terminal users?
Many of the posts I've read seem to be from people using Linux on their own computer. So they don't have to face problems like not being able to write in /usr/local, maybe not being root at all, etc.
They have solutions like "update", "reinstall", etc which are forbidden to us.
I think we could help each other by sharing our experiences, and support each other morally by talking about how hopeless our sysadmins and "support" people are ;-). Only joking, my "support" people are actually quite nice, it's just that they're so busy they are usually not available... And they finish work around 5 while everybody knows that you always need support at night or during weekends :-).
Please consider it.
