The install guide instructs you to install GemStone as root since “GemStone system security is established through file permissions and process attributes.” I think that this made more sense a couple decades ago in an environment one machine was shared by many users and many applications. If you are the only user on the machine or GemStone is the only application, then it may be easier to install everything as one user. (This is the way I’ve always done it.) In that case, as long as everyone uses the same login, then you should not have a security problem.
