Just started with FreeBSD and I am not sure whether I need to be root to install programs or not? For example, the manual for installing X11 never says that we should issue
However - it does not work without being a root, so my current solution is to add my account to
wheel group, and do
su whenever I do
pkg_add -r or anything. Is this the "best practice" in unix?
The handbook does really talk about it in the user accounts section. Any tips appreciated.
