RunAsGroup = [ name | gid ]
The RunAsGroup slow.conf configuration item defines the group that slowmilt will run as, if it is executed by root.
When slowmilt first starts to run, it looks at its effective
and real user identities to see if either is root.
If so, it next checks to see if this RunAsGroup item was defined
(the default is undefined), and if it is, slowmilt
next checks to see if it was defined with an integer gid, or with
a text name. An integer gid is used as-is. A text name is looked up
in the group file to find the gid for that name. If the name
cannot be found, the following error is printed, and slowmilt
Otherwise a good gid was specified or found, so slowmilt
sets its effective and real gids to that value.
RunAsGroup=badname: no such group name
Generally, RunAsGroup should not be set if you set the sgid bit on the slowmilt executable. You might want to set sgid bit if you want to allow shared access to the slowedit program. The sgid bit is effective no matter who runs slowedit, whereas this RunAsGroup item is only effective when run by root.
