Kopete 8 on Mandrake 9.1

Hi guys, I have installed Mandrake 9.1 and been getting used to it fairly well.

I came to install Kopete today and was stummped as it would not install.

i unzipped the tar.gz file finr and used

./configure and make commands ok but when it came to make install it would not go, Permission Denide.

Now I spose this is because I am not logged in as Root, ???

Dose anyone have any info on this.

Indeed, you need to be logged in as root at make install step. The complete process should be, first logged in as regular user:

and then:

su <enter>
<type your root password>
make install
