Re: [K12OSN] Why PA system mode?

/etc/passwd on one of your logged in client to see what I mean.

So really the user is on both the client and server and as such it seems
like pulse could run as the real user.

Maybe the system mode thing is a carryover from a time in the past
(LTSP4 maybe?) where there were no real users on the client? Can anyone
confirm/deny this?


Convince LTSP upstream to change it and it will change in K12Linux.
