Hi all folks

Gentoo 1.4

I encountered problem in using 'sudo'

# epm -q sudo

# sudo -u satimis  kmail
trying to create local folder: Permission denied
failed to create /root/.kde/socket-mymachine
kdeinit: Aborting.  No write access to $HOME directory <root>
ERROR: KUniqueApplication: Can't setup DCOP communication

# ls -l /root/.kde/
total 1
drwx ------ 2 root   root   Autostart
drwx ------ 10 root   root   share
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root    root     socket-mymachine ->  /tmp/ksocket-root
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root    root     tmp-mymachine ->  /tmp/kde-root

# ls -l /root/.kde/socket-mymachine/
-rw-r-r--  1 root   root   KSMServer__0
srw------- 1 root   root   kdeinit-:0
srwxr-xr-x 1 root   root   klauncherxDBXNa.slave-socket

Kindly advise.
