[asterisk-users] Error opening file for reading: Permission denied

Grepping the output of the strace revealed this:

stat("/root/.terminfo", 0x7fff8622ed50) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
open("/root/.asterisk_history", O_RDONLY) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
open("/root/.odbcinst.ini", O_RDONLY)   = -1 EACCES (Permission denied) 
[this one many times]

That must be because I'm starting asterisk as "root".   When I su to 
asterisk first, then start it, those above disappear. Problem solved!

Thanks Steve!
