|Summary:||ASTERISK-03909: make install crash for nonroot user|
|Date Opened:||2005-04-11 04:47:47||Date Closed:||2011-06-07 14:11:57|
|Description:||setting PREFIX_INSTALL, compiling and installing Asterisk as nonroot is prevented due to attempt to write into directory /usr/lib/pkgconfig in mkpkgconfig.|
Script mkpkgconfig checks only if directory exists but not if it has enough rights to write there.

What about if you chown user.user /usr/lib/pkgconfig ?

This is more general question.
if you are installing into user defined directory like
then you should not write nowhere else and not even /usr/lib.

why not make DESTDIR=/opt/asterisk install

Also logic would tell me that you must install that one file as root.
