Hi Nigel,

This is a hosting provider so I don't have any permissions to change things outside of my user directory.   I already have a ~/usr directory of my own.  That seems like a decent alternative place to install it.

Can you be a little more specific about what change to make to ./configure?

means thet you do not have permission to create the directory `/usr/local/include'. Are you able to install this as root, or have you a supervisor who can? Otherwise you can compile glpk using the --prefix= option in ./configure to specify a directory where you can install glpk.

Hi group,

I need some help getting glpk installed as a Ruby gem on my bluehost server.  

I have followed these steps.

I get as far as make install and run into some permission trouble.
