Hi List!

Sorry, if this is slightly out of topic, as my linux knowledge is somewhat limited (or I've forgotten things over the years passed by ...).
Tested the released source tarball 0.10.5 from www.ethereal.com, I was 
able to compile/install it without major problems.
As I've implemented some new features to the capturing on win32, I 
wanted to test this on my "new" SuSE9.1 box.
I put all the win32 sources into a zip file moved it to the SuSE box 
(using an USB stick) and unpacked it (both tried with Konqueror and 
unzip). Tried it both under root and user privileges.
But failed to do the ./autogen.sh step, because I got "permission 
denied" from the bash (or some child process of it?).
Then I tried to do this using su, but got the same result. Then I tried 
logged in as root and got the same result.
As I'm stuck here, anyone got a clue what I could do now?

Regards, ULFL
