10.3: Install the GNU Midnight Commander from source
Authored by: midtoad on Nov 13, '06 07:21:22PM

mc does one thing that I haven't been able to easy do with muCommander, XFolders and the like: run as root. This is needed to do installs or copy files into the lib/site-packages folder of your Python install (among others).

I'd use something else if there were a way to authenticate when needed, rather than have the product complain about permissions, then stop.
