configuring kernel 2.6.10, need root?
I've recently configured my kernel for the first time and am having strange permissions issues now (audio cdrom, for example). When I was performing the typical steps for configuring and installing the kernel and modules, I occasionally used root when performing make "something" install, even though the instructions I was following never indicated that root user was needed. Is it necessary to be SU to configure and install a kernel?? I assumed so, but what do I know....
