[tor-talk] tor --verify-config requires root?



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

Hi,

is it expected that 'tor -f configfile --verify-config requires root?
(file is world readable)

Running it as root returns 0, non-root 255.

[warn] Error setting groups to gid 107: "Operation not permitted".
[warn] If you set the "User" option, you must start Tor as root.
[warn] Failed to parse/validate config: Problem with User value. See
logs for details.
[err] Reading config failed--see warnings above.

so --verify-config does more than just reading the config file I guess.

thanks,
Nusenu
