Description Benny Pedersen 2022-04-18 02:50:17 UTC
as it should only run as postfwd user / postfwd group
Comment 1 genBTC 2022-04-18 03:29:12 UTC
This is the point they want to convey:

<Vierdo> so why is acct-group/postfwd / acct-user/postfwd in portage ? :(
<Vierdo> openrc should not start it as root
<Vierdo> postfwd should not be coded with need to start as root

They want to run it non-root, and they say this is happening:

I cannot confirm or deny what is going wrong , but I am trying to bridge a language barrier from IRC to bugzilla to help understand this persons bug.
