lh testroot - Ensure that a system is built as root
lh testroot [live-helper options]
lh testroot is a high-level command (porcelain) of live-helper(7), the
Debian Live tool suite.
lh testroot simply checks to see if you are root. If not, it exits with
an error. Debian Live images must currently be built as real root.
Note: Support for using fakeroot(1) and sudo(8) internally in
live-helper itself is still experimental, however, calling a helper
yourself with sudo is safe.
lh testroot has no specific options but understands all generic
live-helper options. See live-helper(7) for a complete list of all
generic live-helper options.
This program is a part of live-helper.
