I'm running OpenELEC on Raspberry Pi
As you know, directory
/storage is a shared home folder between user
root and user
This makes a problem when you want to setup ssh key authentication for root
Because for that, you will have to change the owner of
root, and change it's permission to
755 so that it won't be writable by non-root users including
In other words, user
openelec won't be able to write to his own home directory
I have done that, and I want to make sure that wouldn't make a problem
When I look at the output of
ps aux I can't find any process running by
openelec user (so that it needs to write to his own home folder)
(the main process
xbmc is running by root too)
Now I have several questions:
- Why does that user
openelecexist in the first place?
- Why it's using a common home directory with root?
/storageis not owned by root by default?
- Have I done/understood something wrong?
