I am trying to install Zope 2.9.3 or 2.9.1 on Suse 10.1 and this is what

error: must supply either home or prefix/exec-prefix -- not both
make: *** [install] Error 1

Any ideas what to do?

Please try again with a Python source build. Usually we don't care much
about system Python installation that are often broken in different ways.

Maybe this can help?

This is from either Plope or Plone site (i think I snipped it long ago):
If you are running everything as root, you will get an instance that cannot be started, because a different effective user id is required for it to change to. Even if you create an account after the fact, that user cannot start zope because it doesn't have access to any of the instance files.

The best way to run mkzopeinstance is to first su to another user (su zope) and then run mkzopeinstance.py. The zope user must have write access to create the directory.

After the instance is created, edit "effective-user zope" into the etc/zope.conf, so if you start it as root later it should su itself to the non-root user.
