RT use with SuSE 7.3

Hello all,

I hate to message the list with a technical question first off, but I’ve
really gotten stumped here. Thanks in advance for putting up with a (sort
of) newbie. And definite newbie to RT. At any rate, on with the problem…

My problem is occuring during compilation for installation. I went ahead
and followed the great instructions on the page and changed the neccesary
things in the Makefile. A point of interest here is that it only has one
path for MySQL variables, so I went ahead and set that to /var/lib/mysql
(which is where mysql keeps it’s databases) and then proceded to symlink
mysql and mysqladmin from a bin directory in there. This seemed to get
everything going happy on that end. I then went ahead and added the group
rt, no problem there so far as I could tell. The make appeared to be
running along smoothly, but then I got the error that follows in the output
snippet below. Forgive me if it’s rather newbieish, but I’m not entirely
sure what to make of the error myself.

/usr/bin/perl /usr/local/rt2/etc/insertdata
Creating system user…done.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. SuSE runs well for us,
but gives me a headache sometimes…I hope your distros treat you a little
more kindly as far as this stuff goes.

Regards,

John

Do you have /var/lib/rt2 writable by members of group rt?On Sun, Dec 09, 2001 at 09:25:16PM -0500, John Dalrain McCreight wrote:

Tried:

mkdir /var/log/rt2
