On machines where I don't have root access, it's not uncommon that I'll use the --prefix option for ./configure to make the install directory somewhere under my home directory. I did that with ngspice, but I get this error:
test -z "/home/milleri/ngspice/share/ngspice/include/ngspice" || /bin/mkdir -p "/home/milleri/ngspice/share/ngspice/include/ngspice"
/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory `/home/milleri': Permission denied
I've never encountered this before. For some reason, it's griping that it can't create my home directory, which is already there.
This is what I'm running on:
Linux version 3.0.0-1-amd64 (Debian 3.0.0-1) (email@example.com) (gcc version 4.5.3 (Debian 4.5.3-4) ) #1 SMP Sun Jul 24 02:24:44 UTC 2011
