Sorry, what's "in fd"? But might not be really relevant.

To install the library etc. system-wide you need root permissions
and it looks like you didn't have them when you tried. Depending
on what you're allowed to do the simplest solution might be to

sudo make install

If you're allowed to use 'sudo' you then will b asked for
your (normal) password and, if you enter it, the installation
should succeed.

If you're not in the group of users allowed to use 'sudo' but
know the root password, then you could try

su -c 'make install'

in that case you'll be asked for the root password and if
you enter that correctly the installation should be run

If you neither are allowed to use 'sudo' nor know the root
password the best thing would be to ask your system admini-
strator. If he refuses you still can do a local (to some-
where in your home directory) install, but that's a bit
more hassle, so I leave an explanation for the case that
you can't get it installed system-wide;-)

                              Best regards, Jens
