I am attempting to do a from-scratch install of nut into openSUSE 13.1 so I can document the steps a customer will need to follow to make nut work with our UPS. I'm running into the problem I have always run into, which is permissions.
I have created the user "ups" and the group "nut" and made ups a member of that group.
I executed: ./configure --with-user=ups --with-group=nut --with-usb --with-dev
Looking at the output, I see that it does recognize that I put a user and group into the command line arg.
Doing a grep for the user and group, I see that it is present in many places as "RUN_AS_USER = ups" and "RUN_AS_GROUP = nut"
I then executed a make, and sudo make install.
I had thought that giving the user and the group would mean that the /usr/local/ups/* directories and binaries created by "make install" would have "nut" as their group, but they don't....they have only root:root. Does the group permissions not get set in these directories upon install? I thought that was the point of creating the user and group in the beginning.
