Are you getting an error when you run it as a user other than root?
Yeah. It pretty clearly says (more or less) "you are running me as root. don't do that." and gives no furtherm options
The message is obviously a "feature" coded into freeciv2 somewhere. Any ideas on getting rid of/or bypassing it?
The other issues are that :
I don't really want to have a special user for freeciv--the one root account is plenty for me.
The window manager files are all owned by root, so what comes up with a "startx" is pretty awful..It could of course be fixed.
I thought it might be nice to make an ipk.... but an ipk that would require users to add another account and change a bunch of file permissions would be kinda lame
