so i downloaded the latest sane to support my astra scanner.
i ran configure, no worries, ran make, no worries.
ran "sudo checkinstall -D" and my whole box went crazy. windows
started popping up, then all my gnome icons were X'ed out. finally i
can not login in it says Cannot cd to "/home/jdodson" I cant login
with any other user. I downloaded sane via your website, WTF kind of
software is this? Some sort of trojan?
it was the sanebackend 1.0.15 from here:
I am using an old laptop because all I can do it go into single user
mode on my ubuntu machine, a little help here as you caused the issue
in the first place?
btw I install packages from source all the time, first issue i have ever had.
