Re: why does maxdb need to be installed as root?
I'd prefer that, too. There is a Debian port you might look into. You can contact Martin Kittel <email@example.com> for information about what changes he made.
Also, the installer just untars the .tgz files that are distributed with the package, I think.
I don't know much about it, so I'd check in with Martin for more specifics.
Thanks for the comment,
