Hi, Lisi. My guess is that this is a permissions issue. Is your id a member
of group src? (Issue the "groups" command and see if src is one of the groups
listed in the output of the command.) Here is a summary of the permission
environment that must exist before you attempt to unpack the source as a non-root
(1) The directory /usr/src must be owned by user root and by group src.
(2) The group (src) must have read, write, and execute permissions on /usr/src.
(3) The group (src) must have the "set group id" permission on /usr/src.
(4) Your non-root userid must be a member of group src.
(5) The output of the "groups" command, when issued by your non-root userid,
must list "src" as one of the groups. Please review the "Introduction"
section of the document.
