Another way to force index-build
Authored by: ubi on Nov 17, '04 03:21:43PM
I compiled jarg in a private subdirectory, then moved it to /usr/local/bin/ (via sudo). I then tried to build the index, but it complained that it "Couldn't open file /usr/local/lib/jarg.idx for writing." So I did the following:
sudo touch /usr/local/lib/jarg.idx
sudo chown ubi: !$
("ubi" is my username.) Now it all works. There are many ways to solve things in Unix...
