I don't use zope, but you will find it is installed in /opt/zope. I got it going as an experiment by reading the /opt/zope/doc/INSTALL.txt I found it easiest to create a new "instance" using /opt/zope/bin/mkzopeinstance.py rather than adapting the skel instance provided. Then I had to change permission on the new instance directory. After that, zope was started with /opt/zope/[instance directory]/bin/runzope.
As to what it is or what it does, I'm still pretty much in the dark!

ok that part where you change permission on the new instance directory.
i think that is where i got messed up.
it had me create a user and password, does that create a new user on my system?
the usr dir, do i change permission for root, my user, a new user, or what ?

i may have to get rid of it all and reinstall, because i think i gakked up this set up pretty
bad

I think the user name and password only creates a zope user, not a system user. I just gave myself (as a user on the system) ownership of the new instance directory:
chown -R [system_user] /opt/zope/[new_zope_user]
I can't be more specific, because I actually used my the same user name and password for zope as my user name and password on the system - but it seemed to work OK like this.
If you decide to reinstall, make sure after having pacman remove zope that you manually delete the /opt/zope directory, as pacman will not remove any files you created manually and you will want to make sure you start with a clean sheet.

it ask for a location to put the user zope directory. i chose /home

i will try all this stuff later.

It's so easy to remove and reinstall using pacman (plus deletion of the zope user directory) that if there's a chance anything got messed up earlier I'd say it makes good sense to wipe it away and start again. Good luck with it.

As far as running zope as root is concerned, see the hint at the end of the output you quoted:

Quote:
(change the effective-user directive in zope.conf)
If you look through zope.conf, towards the end you will find a line you have to change so that you can run as root in the guise of an "effective-user".

With your problems running as user, that looks like a permission problem. If you created that user directory as root, even though it is in the user's home directory you would need to change the permissions on it to make it accessible by the user.
