How to change in no-root?

Weird - LTIB's test is simple enough, it looks at "$>" in perl which is the effective user id of whoever is running it, and in your case its zero which is the user id of root - It shouldn't be, so somehow you are running as root.  Did you do anything "strange' in the shell that you are trying to install/run LTIB?

1) What is the output of "whoami"?

2) What is the output of "grep guiseppe /etc/passwd" show?

3) What is the output of "touch /tmp/foobar && ls -lg /tmp/foobar"

4) What is the output of "ls -lg ltib"?

Try opening up a new shell, and make sure you are not root (i.e. whoami should *not* show root), and try installing/building LTIB again...
