[LDM #PVY-821721]: Problem with ldmd.conf after upgrading to 6.13.11



Chris,

The LDM user is a member of group "wheel" and, consequently, has sudo(1) 
access. I used this to remove the previous root-based installation and to 
perform the installation actions that needed privileges on the newly-downloaded 
package.

In the future, the easiest steps for you are likely (as the LDM user)

    1. Unpack the distribution with "pax -zr -s ';/;/src/;' <ldm-6..."
    2. Run the configure(1) script with the "--disable-root-actions" option
    3. Build and install the package via "make install"
    4. Execute the actions that require privileges using sudo ("sudo make 
root-actions")

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
