Re: knetstats installation: newbie questions



Hans Troost,

I have noticed in your last three posts that you are doing things as
root.  Being root all the time is a really bad idea.  You really
should create an account for yourself (example: hans, htroost....),
then login as that user.  This will prevent you from damaging the OS
by doing silly commands, believe me it will happen.  You should only be
root when you really really have to be.  And when you are root, be
VERY VERY careful.  A good rule of thumb as root is before you hit
return ask is this what I really want to do?

Just my 2cents.

Mike
