(Note: I'm not sure, but this question may be quite Arch-specific.)
I have tried to 'makepkg -s' easy-e17 in a few different places, but to no avail. I get the error:
ERROR: You do not have write permission to store packages in /bin/easy-e17.
Though, I also get this error for any other directory I try in. When trying with 'sudo' I am told that it is a "bad idea."
I have never used makepkg before, so whatever is wrong might be obvious; I have never "fine-tined" my makepkg.conf before, either.
Probably not relevant, but just in case: easy-e17 is a group of files from the Arch User Repository for installing Enlightenment (DR17). Perhaps there is something I need to install in order to make packages from the AUR? Or does that sound ridiculous? I wouldn't know.
