  • Native apps will be sandboxed in future webOS versions. How will this app deal with those restrictions? Dallashigh 00:58, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Without knowing specifics, I'd guess Palm will probably create a non-root user and have type: game apps run as that user. If so, we'd have to either a) prompt for a user name / password at start and call login as whatever user (could be root) or b) create a shell as the new non-root user, and you could run sudo or su - yourself or c) install the program as suid root. If palm takes some other unanticipated measure (such as chroot shell as well) we'll have to deal with that when we discover what it is. Destinal 23:27, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
