3.7. Owner of package files

As build process was going with permissions of your daily user, the same user became owner of resulting package files. It is not desirable to install the package into system like that. Some programs will not function correctly because of that.

To set up root as files owner, one may use the fakeroot utility. It allows to create archive with root-owned files, staying at general user account. In order to do that install fakeroot with your OS procedure. After find and uncomment the string in rdd.def:

any_util_root = fakeroot
It is possible to use any other alternate utility with same functionality:
any_util_root = root_owner_from_user

Another method to solve problem with files owner is to the building under root account, we do not recommend that way.
