root file system more users with different access before mounting


I need to customize linux kernel root file system for embedded linux system. During compile time, for root file system I am able to create different user/group ex: "gnumuzic/Muzic". But I want to give access to group "Muzic" to some folders like /dev/nexig during compile time. Any suggesion for me?
If missed any information to support my question please inform.

Have a look at kevux, which does a (non fhs compliant) very good job of this sort of thing with group permissions.

In practise it is silly or insecure to open permissions on /; better open them on a subdir of /, keeping such liberality away from executables. But you should be able to put them on home, and use group permissions to allow some or all users in.
