Hi Postgresql,

The Version of PostgreSQL: 7.1.3

The Version of pgsql_perl5: 1.9.0


I have POSTGRES_INCLUDE and POSTGRES_LIB set up. When run "perl Makefile.PL" as PostgreSQL user I got following message.

# perl Makefile.PL

Configuring Pg

Remember to actually read the README file !


Writong Makefile for Pg

Unable to open MakeMaker.tmp: Permission denied at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/ExtUtils/ line 750.

When run this as root there is no problem. Could you please help me to resolve this problem, I'm looking forward to receive your reply. 

Thanks a lot!
