installed firefly with the ipkg tool. edited the config file and tried to start it up, here’s the output:

Strange. In either 0.2.4 or nightlies, it should run as “guest”. If that’s 0.2.4, you can try making sure there isn’t a trailing space after “root” in the config file. It might be trying to lookup the user “root ” instead.

You could also try changing the runas user to “0”. That should work in theory, too. Although I’d recommend running it as guest for security reasons.
