new problem/question ..

now I get the following message:
*** Packaged toolchain compilation version   options    time (sec)   status
Resetting our nice level to 10 [ DONE ]
Checking if we're running as root user [ FAIL ]

ERROR: Not building as root
        Check /home/robert/ipfire/ipfire-2.x/log/_build.preparation.log for 
errors if applicable
robert at chrissy:~/ipfire/ipfire-2.x$

why should I do that as root?

is the build process replacing my system?

this is not what I want actually ..

I think I restart everything in a virtual machine ..
