I should rephrase that. I have authority to install things into my own directory. I don't have authority to execute a compiled module that is not in the standard /usr/bin or /usr/lib/bin. So, in ot...

You are right. It's freebsd. I found that out by running python. (The operating system displays when you run python in interactive mode.) So, there is no /proc and no uname command. I have en...
