Program permission (to install etc)

hi! all
i've setup my PC with FreeBSD 6.2 and i've created login ID for my friends
i would like to allow them to install program (since they're requesting to use bnc/psybnc) using their shell

however, they have encounter such error to install the program
Quote:
$ make menuconfig
Initializing Menu-Configuration[*] Running Conversion Tool for older psyBNC Data.
gcc:Permission denied
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/home/test/psybnc.
they have to sudo in order to run "make"

how is this possible for me to allow them to run the program by themself without assigning them to be in sudo group?

thanks all...

They should install the program in a directory they are allowed to write into, such as one under their home directory.

However, as a system administrator, I suggest you ask people the programs they will want to run and you can decide which ones you install so they can all share them.

hurm... i thougt it is gcc permission
the user cant even query the gcc version
Quote:
$ gcc --version
gcc: Permission denied
$
and i noticed this in gcc folder
Quote:
-rwxr-x--- 2 root compiler 187176 Apr 20 20:54 /usr/bin/gcc
how do i enable gcc permisson for them?
# 4  
chmod o+x /usr/bin/gcc

or add people to the compiler group.

Then have a look at the read permissions in /usr/include and /usr/lib
