Subject Re: db file access right
Author Fabrice Aeschbacher

We are using a linux computer as a kind of 'build server', where many
developper can build our software (not under root, but as a normal
user). The main aim is not not to give them the root password, but
rather to be able to build under different configurations (for
different users). After having built the database ('make db'), the
install file must be create ('make image'), which requires to read the
DB file.

Sudo is not a good solution, since it asks for a password (and hence
cannot be used in a batch)

Best regards,
