Thread: eggdrop package, runs under which user?

  1. #1

    Default eggdrop package, runs under which user?

    I installed the eggdrop rpm package via buildservice, from what I understand, it's written in TCL, now, how do I figure out which user it's running under? So, I can set the correct permissions on this folder it needs to create files under =]

    did you happen to see this guide http://www.linuxhelp.net/guides/eggdrop/

    which advises "Please note that you do not want to be root when you
    install/run an Eggdrop bot. Do this as your regular user or create a
    seperate user for the Eggdrop to run as. I will base this guide on
    having the bot in /home/user. With that said, once you download it and
    place the file in /home/user, untar it by running..."

    or maybe you read the instructions in the docs installed from the rpm?
    do they disagree with the above guide?
