Permissions issue when installing devstack

I install Ubuntu 12.04 and create user "stack" during install. (so it will be a member of sudoers group)

log on as user "stack"

cd into /opt and clone devstack.

Set up a basic localrc

Run ./

And then get permissions errors when any file has to be created.

If I chown -R stack:stack devstack the installation succeeds.

I know devstack is not meant for production but is this how it is supposed to work?

It's a pretty typical linux install experience. Can't say if it's intended or not. The good thing is, it does all the work as "stack" which is an unprivileged user.

"cd into /opt and clone devstack" ...what exact command did you run to clone devstack?

Hope this helps.

Kind regards, -Paul
