Hi John.. Thanks. I know I shouldn't run with sudo, but I've been
unable to run it any other way. I just dont know enough about
permissions to change it. I think the problem started when I installed
it. Using the 21.1 version I downloaded. I ran the .configure /
make and then when it came to "make install" it wouldn't work
"premission denied" So I had to use sudo make install. I realize this
was the mistake..but Im not sure how to fix it.
Im running an ubuntu server which does have the package.. but its an
older version.. 20.
