Building Software as an Unprivileged (non-root) User?? BLFS
Hi I have a doubt BLFS building where it says:
Chapter 2. Important Information
The golden rule of Unix System Administration is to use your superpowers only when necessary. Hence, BLF recommends that you build software as an unprivileged user and only become the root user when installing the software. This philosophy is followed in all the packages in this book. Unless otherwise specified, all instruction should be executed as an unprivileged user. The book will advise you on instructions that need root privileges.
1.- All packages must be installed as root or do I create a user?
