Re: lambdamoo-core and lamdamoo-server virtual packages plus, moo user

When installing a new database, would it be appropriate to stash it in
/var/lambdamoo, or in /usr/lib/lambdamoo ?

BlackBriar is currently has people testing out OpalCore, so we might be
able to package that soon.  No word on an E_MOO core, Ill check that out

Apparently the r3 server crashes 10 minutes after startup:  thats why
there is an r4.  r2 has some memory leaks, but doesnt crash.

(from Loft) Blackbriar would have the server run as the user who owns the
databases, so just don't make it setuid and don't put it in /etc/rc.d

I cant say I agree with that, but thats the opinion of one wizard.  I
personally like it that its all "set up" for me, without even touching
anything I get a functioning lambdamoo on my own machine.
