    You must have already been logged in as root when you did mkdir ~/slackbuilds. The tilde expands to the current user's home.

    You don't want to build the packages as root (unsafe), so you should move these files to your user's home directory.

    To actually move them, you'll need to be root.
    Code:
    mv /root/slackbuilds /home/username/slackbuilds
    Replace username with your user's name.

    You'll need to change ownership of the files after you move them.

    To change ownership, as root do
    Code:
    chown -R username:users /home/username/slackbuilds
    Replace username in both locations with your user's name. This assumes again that you placed the

    You should be able to continue as normal now.

    Code:
    su -
    cd ~/slackbuilds/b43-fwcutter
    chmod +x b43-fwcutter.Slackbuild
    ./b43-fwcutter.Slackbuild
    installpkg /tmp/b43-fwcutter-blah.tgz
    And similar for b43-firmware

    su -
    cd ~/slackbuilds/b43-fwcutter
    chmod +x b43-fwcutter.Slackbuild
    ./b43-fwcutter.Slackbuild
    installpkg /tmp/b43-fwcutter-blah.tgz
    Whoops, if you do su - first, change
    Code:
    cd ~/slackbuilds/b43-fwcutter
    to the absolute path
    Code:
    cd /home/username/slackbuilds/b43-fwcutter
    Replace username as usual.
