Sorry, I didn't see the 'ack' part and put it in my answer, which is now deleted.

comment How do I upgrade to the newest Firefox via YaST in OpenSuSE 11.x?
Thanks for the comments. That is somewhat of a bummer, as in some of the Debian based distributions, I can simply add a repo that has the latest Firefox version, and I don't have to worry about it. Oh well, each Linux OS has pros and cons.

That doesn't quite work, because it errors out based on dependencies. That's why I want to include the whole repo, so those dependencies will be taken care of. Thanks though.

comment How can I build and install PL/R as a non-privileged user?
I don't know why this was downvoted. As I stated in the answer ("some software"), this doesn't always work, but with many software packages it does.

comment Red hat linux command line character underscore problem
Is the $ a real character? What happens if you don't hit the backspace and hit Enter? Does it send cd /etc/$ to the prompt, or does it ignore the $?

@A Question Asker, perhaps you can edit the makefile to install in different paths. For instance, if you see a directory like /usr/local/bin, change to /home/username/bin, likewise for /usr/local/lib.
