Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


With SunPC 4.1 and the 102924 jumbo patch installed, a user (who is not root) attempts to run SunPC and receives the following error message:

SunPC may NOT run correctly as root.
Please run in user mode.
SunPC script is exiting

The user's primary group ID is probably root. For example:

$ /usr/bin/id
uid=33650(gruff) gid=0(root)
