            Bug ID: 327
           Summary: Don't use sudo with setup.py
           Product: Libre-SOC's first SoC
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: ---
         Component: Source Code
          Assignee: lkcl at lkcl.net
          Reporter: programmerjake at gmail.com

   NLnet milestone: ---

The HDL Workflow page should be fixed to *NOT* use sudo when calling setup.py,
instead, either use a venv (preferred) or install to the local user account.
This avoids creating files owned by root in the source directory, avoiding the
need to run all code using sudo. This also makes it possible for people stuck
with shared computers where they don't have sudo privileges to be able to
run/develop our code.
