#1675 closed enhancement (fixed)

refuse to run as root

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: sascha_silbe
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:

Severity: Trivial Keywords: r+

Bug Status: Assigned

Description

It's a very bad idea to run Sugar as root for a variety of reasons, but there seem to be people who try it (and fail) nevertheless. Failing early and with a clear message increases safety and safes precious developer and user time.
