To be honest, I'm new enough to Linux I thought logging in as root just meant running the particular commands as root. Now that I've logged in as root though, the same is happening.

The susepaste command keeps failing. And how would I copy and paste anything into a browser when I have no graphical interface at all?

And I don't know what a kmp is or how to get it.

Thanks for the ongoing help to a real newbie.
