[Freeswitch-users] freeswitch init

Hi All,

On the Freeswitch init page (Debian) the setup you to create a user
"freeswitch" to run the FS process. When I did this, freeswitch started up
but wasn't able to find/open channels to my sangoma/wanpipe hardware. Is
this because:

1. The sangoma hardware was installed and running through root, which is a
different user than the one running FS?
2. Wanrouter is not getting started before freeswitch on system boot?

Is there a disadvantage to setting up the init script for FS to be run by
root? Will that solve this problem?

Thanks in advance from a Linux/FS newbie,
