i'm trying to set up a user account for me, so i don't do everything as root.
right now, i cannot run vi or elvis from a user account. It works fine from root.
i get the message "Error writing headers to "tmp/elv_9b.1" or some such elv*
file. other things seem to work. i wondering if some part of elvis is not
set up with correct permissions. any ideas.?
i also cannot create directories from a n account besides root. i get the
message 'Cannot make 'dir name' :no space left on device' i don't know if
this is connected with the previous problem. if its some sort of
configuration problem i have no idea where to look.
i would appreciate help, or at least be pointed in the right direction.
