Linux Mandrake 10 (2.6.8.1) with Xampp 1.4.9a

including

PHP 4.3.9 (set in Xampp)
MySQL 4.0.21
Apache 2.0.52

Register Globals = On
db was created successfully
Checked URL & Path

Folders\files needed to be made writable are dun' so :)
And YES i've read the Wiki stuff which didnt gimme the
least help at all :)

Problem:
After installting without any problems or errors i end up
with a blank page :(

I logg into the admin area (which are accessible)and
go to System Admin\Blocks and find NOTHING, not a single
block is listed!?
I go to Modules, add Forum and set that to be shown in
startpage. Then i go back to Home and find the Forum Module
is loaded in the "main-frame" but NO menu's are visible!?

All pages in the admin section is working, accept for the Blocks-page.

When i turn on PHP DEBUG i get the following on frontpage:
Notice [PHP]: Undefined Index: HTTP_USER_AGENT in the file include\functions.php line 441 which reads:
$ret = isset ($HTTP_SERVER_VARS[$key]) ? $HTTP_SERVER_VARS[$key]: $HTTP_ENV_VARS [$key]:

And when i turn on MySQL\Blocks Debug i get this:
SELECT b.* FROM xoops_newblocks b, xoops_block_module_link m WHERE m.block_id=b.bid AND b.isactive=1 AND b.visible=1 AND m.module_id IN (0,2,-1) AND b.bid IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16) ORDER BY b.weight,b.bid Error number: 1 Error message: Can't create/write to file '/root/tmp/#sql_2d6f_0.MYI' (Errcode:13)

Made The folder /root/tmp/ writable to ALL (just as a test) but no difference :)

Help? Ideas? Suggestions? Anything... PLZ

it's definately not a XOOPS problem, as you can see in the MySQL debug info you posted.

Apparently, your MySQL user doesn't have enough rights for the /root/tmp folder. Configure your server and give the MySQL user that uses the XOOPS database to have write access for the /root/tmp folder.

Im running it all on localhost with the default MySQL DB User
"root" and just the password changed. Im having a very hard
time beleiving this account shouldn't have the appropiate
rights in that folder!? By the way, where in the install
docs does it say that the "/root/tmp"/ folder needs to be
writable by the db user??

I also can't see the logical connection why the menu shouldn't
show in the start-page because of this and why NO blocks at
all are showing in the Admin area?

I have tried to grant Everyone FULL rights to /root/tmp/ but
it makes no difference at all :( I have run XOOPS a coupl of
times before on Linux but never had any configuration problems
like this, so what has changed lately??

By the way, i am of course running XOOPS 2.0.7.3 :)
