Authorization error with API user knife initialization `knife configure -i`

Notice these errors. First error shows the API user of knife (root) failed to authenticate:

Docsis-server install in Ubuntu 8.04

Base guide is here
http://users.accesscomm.ca/docsis_server/howto_1.html

I installed docsis first so this package might have dependencies already installed from docsis.

wget http://users.accesscomm.ca/docsis_server/docsis-server-current.tar.bz2

bunzip

aptitude install m4

./configure

it will look for m4
see if m4 is installed `which m4`
if not, aptitude install m4
if already installed, mod configure script to do the m4 check correctly:
look for this line,

if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xGNU"; then

change it to:
if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xm4"; then

run ./configure again

if you get this error:
checking for mysql_config... /usr/libexec/mysql_config
configure: error: You need at least mysql 4.0.0, get it at http://www.mysql.com

aptitude install mysql-client mysql-server libmysqlclient15-dev

run ./configure again

make

make install

verify

if you get an error about floor:

and add the math function:
