blfs non-root user permissions question
excuse the noobishness, i'm wondering if in blfs the non-root user that is unpacking and patching makefiles, etc., gets write privleges to the /usr/src directory. i kinda thought that root owned everything but the tmp and home directories, and i doubt /usr/src gets the same permissions as $LFS/sources, a+wt, but i dunno...
or is the non-root user added to a group that has the permissions, i.e., write access to /usr/src? or something else entirely? in bhlfs a non-root user named builder is to be created, but the commands to do so are missing...
