I am trying to install xfi drivers, Ubuntu 9.04, but get the following error in the terminal:

jaypugh@jaypugh-desktop:~/Desktop/XFiDrv$ make install
Copy module files...
mkdir: cannot create directory `/lib/modules/2.6.28-13-generic/kernel/drivers/ssound': Permission denied
make: *** [install] Error 1

Any ideas?? Your help is very welcome.

make install writes to places on the / partition so you need sudo to make install

sudo make install

If you run
sudo !! it will run the last command you entered with root priviliges

make install
sudo !!

= sudo make install
