|0003086||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2016-02-20 23:14||2017-02-07 17:04|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003086: Regression of bug 46|
|Description||Apparently https://bugs.kali.org/view.php?id=46 has returned. VLC cannot be run as root, which impedes it's usability for forensic purposes. The VLC devs, after much pleading, appear to have added an --allow-run-as-root option in the build stage, but Kali doesn't enable it (anymore?).|
|Steps To Reproduce||root@kali:~# vlc|
VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry.
If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports
you can use vlc-wrapper (make sure it is Set-UID root and
cannot be run by non-trusted users first).
Cannot determine unprivileged user for VLC!
