Hi all,

Ran into trouble with dms on linux.

Uncompressed the dms.shar file using 

sh < dms.shar

made the following changes to GNUmakefile

LIBDIR  = home/ramdas/DOCK

BINDIR  = home/ramdas/DOCK/dms

Typed make install

got the following error


rm -f /usr/local/man/man1/dms.1
cp dms.1 /usr/local/man/man1
cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/man/man1/dms.1': Permission denied
make: *** [maninstall] Error 1


Do I need to make any changes to 

MANDIR  = /usr/local/man/man1

Actually created the subdirectories man in /home/ramdas/DOCK and man1 in man,
but the error persisted.

There is a binary dms file but if try to use it, get the following error ->


execl: No such file or directory
server died
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


I think someone else got this execl error, but didn't see any reply addressing

Any ideas why this is happening? 

Thanks in advance for your help.
