No Permissions


I went to install ACPI and the program said I do not have permissions to ./Makefile. I went to root under my screen name and still the same. I also logged into the computer directly under root and still the same.
Anyone have any ideas of what is going on. I am trying to monitor my laptop battery.
Thanks,
Steve

from the way you are wording this it seems your problem is that you are never actually becoming root. type 'su' and then your root password. Once this is done then try to run make.

hrmm... (just thought of something)
Are you tring to run ./Makefile ??

If you are building from source (which I assume you are) you will want to run 'make' then 'make install'

Hope this helps...

I think his problem is that he's trying to run a Makefile, which is not supposed to be executed. Just type
Code:
make

You don't have Qt installed. That's what all those 'qblahblah.h not found' errors are about. If you install Qt you should be fine. Or specifically Qt-Devel if you're in rpm / apt-get land.

First of all you should read the README and INSTALL files for tips on installing, which usually goes like this:

./configure
make
make install (this one ass root if you want to make it available to everyone)

Okay, can you hook up a novice and tell me where to get it and if it needs any dependencies.
Thanks a bunch,
Steve

No idea if it needs dependencies, I steer well clear of horrible packages. Far better to compile from source (although Qt takes an AGE to compile...).
try www.freshrpms.net or www.pbone.net.
You may well need to install both Qt and Qt-devel, though if you're running KDE Qt (not the devel one) will already be installed cos KDE uses Qt.

after all that, it still did not work, and when installing Qt, it too had errors. It would be nice to have a file or program that was all complete and worked the first time. This is ridiculous. I am so sick of programs that come half way done or complete

I am running slackware 10, kernel 2.4.26 on a dell inspiron 1000.

I have qt and kde installed.

I am getting the following error

Code:
In file included from PropertySheetMain.cpp:115:
PropertySheet.h:200: error: syntax error before `*' token
make[1]: *** [PropertySheetMain.o] Error 1
The README file said to run "gui/ospm_gui". This file is not located in the gui directory. I am assuming it is because the initial install did not work properly??? I can run "./ospmd" without any errors though.

I attempted to look up the error on google and this was the only page that showed up. Any suggestions or fixes or even a little nudge in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks.
