Re: Running DOSEMU as user

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Did you start dosemu with the -s option? The suid bit alone doesn't give enough rights any longer.

The question is do they need such rights? You should be able to run dosmeu as a user without getting the ability to go direct to hardware (which -s allows) unless that is a real requirement for users.

For most things (serial ports and printing) you don't need this and don't want to give it out.

We do in our application as we need direct hardware access, but that is not given to all+sundry who can log in.
