waylandbillInd[y]: the point of sudo is to eliminate needing to use a root password.
Ind[y]waylandbill: OK. I want to do it though. How can I?
MilhousePunkRockwaylandbill: Luckily I run Kubuntu on an older ThinkPad, only a trackpoint there... My buddy is setting up a desktop anyway
waylandbillInd[y]: you'd use su
SSJ_GZfilemover: You need the -dev packages for each of Qt and X installed.
waylandbillnot sudo
!root
ubotusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for all information.
filemovergreat
thnks
i think ive got em
MilhousePunkRockInd[y]: "sudo su -"
makes you login as root
filemoveri installed kdevelop and got Qt along with it
waylandbillMilhousePunkRock: yeah. feisty beta is okay.
MilhousePunkRockOr rather remain super user until you log out
waylandbilljust su
SSJ_GZfilemover: sudo apt-get build-dep ktorrent should do the trick.
filemoverand i installed all the x.org dev stuff as well
waylandbillno sudo before it. su or su -
filemoverok
but its not the version i want
MilhousePunkRockwaylandbill: See, I never use that... ;-)
filemoverthe one in the repositries is great but theyve just inproved the latest one out of sight
MilhousePunkRockwaylandbill: By the way, I swore to myself to wait at least until the RC since the Edgy beta gave me so many problems... But I just couldn't...
waylandbillMilhousePunkRock: nor do I. Enabling root is a security risk and sudo works just fine.
filemoverthe download limmits are way up there and steady not like b4
SSJ_GZfilemover: That just grabs the dependencies necessary for building ktorrent. Generally, these don't change much between releases.
filemoverok
gotcha
thnx
waylandbillMilhousePunkRock: it's like a new toy. Just can't wait. :-)
SSJ_GZfilemover: np =)
MilhousePunkRockwaylandbill: I guess that's why the ability to su is pretty undocumented...
waylandbill: On top of that, some stuff does not really work for me yet. But I've got two weeks off now and fixing all that will be a pleasant thing to do... :-D
waylandbillMilhousePunkRock: two weeks off. that's too nice.
MilhousePunkRockIt's not really off, I still have to write the journals for the past few classes (/me is a student of biology)
waylandbillI write windows software
MilhousePunkRockWho forced you to? ;-)
j/k, I am pretty sure you could hardly make a living from writing FOSS
