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.

11.2 is the OS I'm running.

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.

Figures. KDE is notorious for taking things that work and making them not so.

U.S. keyboard layout that is.

comment Grub does not recognize password
@Gilles, good question and of course the obvious one to be asked. To ensure that typing the password wasn't an issue, I changed to a much simpler one on a temporary basis. Yes, I am using the keyboard layout.
