And thanks, Shige, but I'm still hoping that my vague memory of another solution, which involved making Stata aware that it was okay for a user (other than root) to invoke update, is correct.

I have a box running Suse Linus on which I have Stata-MP 11 installed.
Although I have administrator (root) privileges, I'd like to be able to update Stata when I'm logged in as me. I know I set this up on my old box, but I can't, for the life of me, find any hint of how I did it. Your help
will be most appreciated.

Cheers.
