Using Linda

Hi All,


Have just set up Linda or I thought I had.

When I run ‘linda package.deb’ I get errors as follows:


debian:/home/david/Desktop/Downloads# linda checkinstall_1.6.1-1_i386.deb

Linda: Running as root, dropping to nobody.

Traceback (most recent call last):

What is the problem here?
