I don't understand yout problem in using 'sudo'. Once you configure
'sudoers' correctly, this can be either done by the users or root. Have
to tried 'sudo'? If not it worth a try.
Let me restate my problem a bit more clearly (I hope). The
administrators maintain and support several applications. Users install
whatever software they feel would be useful to themselves and others.
The present practice followed is compiling from sources with a prefix,
and then writing an entry into a file. This system is really messy.
Is there a way to manage this?
Won't the sytem really become messy if the users installed whatever they
want? Installation of a software is a cruicial task and it should be
done only by the right persons. You can have multiple admins (using 'sudo').
