Eric and Doug's responses were on the right track, it was just as the error
said a permissions problem. Everything looked right from ';s -l', but wasn't
'sudo su www-data', and then try to 'touch nothing' in the location then

I'm installing Drupal and CiviCRM  and getting what looks like permissions
errors on the CiviCRM install, even though the Drupal install went fine
and the permissions are the same.

Error: Could not create directory:

I've manually created this directory and verified that permissions are wr
for everyone.

This install is on Ubuntu Server 10.10
I had also tried installing on opensuse 11.3 and got hung up by an
incompatibility with the system date spewing errors on every page, but
otherwise succeeded on that platform.

P.S. I'm about to get an account with Linode, if anyone has any new
customer offers or wants to get a referral credit...
