Good day everyone,

Well I'm stuck: I have tried several times to install this package and I
always get the same error at one point during the test performed by the
dummy user.

For what it counts, my distribution is SuSE 9.

Here is the part displaying the error:

NOTICE: Some tests will or might need to be
        run as root. Do `make check-root'
        as `root' to run just these tests.

Does anyone has an idea where I should start looking?

Many thaks in advance for any help!
