KDE3.2 /root installation safe?
I was installing KDE3.2 with konstruct and came upon this:
"By default "Konstruct" installs to ~/kde3.2/ which means you don't have
to possess root privileges or risk to damage your system or affect another KDE."
Now, I want to install it into /root/kde3.2 b/c I, for some reason, think I am going to delete it or something will happen if I don't make it need root access.
Now, is this safe? Is this giving me a higher "risk to damage [my] system"? How much higher?
Should I do this, or just install in into ~/kde3.2?
Also, is it normal that it doesn't affect another KDE? Do most people install over their previous version? Am I going to have to go through extra steps to access 3.2 instead of 3.1.3 (my current version)?
