Description Juan Salaverria 2002-09-20 08:00:18 UTC
According to the documentation the daemon cannot be started by a root user for security reasons. In the sources this is accomplished by refusing to run distccd from a user with uid=0 and gid=0. In Linux the gid 0 belongs to the root group, but in FreeBSD this is the gid of the wheel group.

How-To-Repeat: Run distccd from any user with default login group 0
