Hi list,

I just tried to compile drbd 0.6.10 on suse 8.2 as normal user and got 
permission problems:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/joachim/drbd-0.6.10/drbd'

    Calling toplevel makefile of kernel source tree, which I believe is in
    NOTE: please ignore warnings regarding overriding of SUBDIRS

make -C /lib/modules/2.4.20-4GB/build SUBDIRS=/home/joachim/drbd-0.6.10/drbd  
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20.SuSE'
scripts/split-include include/linux/autoconf.h include/config
scripts/split-include: pdc202xx/force.h: Permission denied
make[2]: *** [include/config/MARKER] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20.SuSE'
make[1]: *** [kbuild] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/joachim/drbd-0.6.10/drbd'
make: *** [all] Error 1

Am I supposed to compile drbd as root? I like to compile as ordinary user and 
just install as root.
