Hi I have made some progress. But I am experiencing a weird error. Not a major one at this juncture - but odd all the same.
I got to step 6 on this guide:
And specifically to this part:
/home/kdedev/src/kde/build/suse_kickoff/configure –prefix=/home/kdedev/kde-unstable > \ /home/kde/src/kde/log/suse_kickoff.log 2>&1
Everything has gone smoothly up until this point. The only difference is I didn't want to create a user called kdedev - as I know how hard it is to change a user name in Linux once it is created and I was afraid I would be stuck with it.
Not a big issue, as, as the guide says the choice of user name is arbitrary
So instead I made a user called jebus97
So when I ran the above command it looks like this:
~/src/kde/build/suse_kickoff$ /home/jebus97/src/kde/build/suse_kickoff/configure –prefix=/home/jebus97/kde-unstable > \ /home/jebus97/src/kde/log/suse_kickoff.log 2>&1
However when I run this command I get the following error:
/src/kde/build/suse_kickoff/configure –prefix=/home/jebus197/kde-unstable > \ /home/jebus97/src/kde/log/suse_kickoff.log 2>&1
-su: /home/jebus97/src/kde/log/suse_kickoff.log: No such file or directory
However this makes no sense whatsoever, since I have followed this guide to the letter, and when I run ls on the specified directory - everything is as it should be:
/src/kde/build/suse_kickoff$ ls /home/jebus97/src/kde/log/
Why is it saying that the required file or directory does not exist, when very clearly it does?
