Autospec, root access really needed?

I need to provide root rights when using autospec “make autospecnew” script. I assume its because autospec uses /var/lib/mock/ directory for mock (chroot).

Is there any way i can use autospec with a non capsys user account?

Perms are for mock. If you can make mock (which uses systemd-nspawn) work without you’ll have a shot but I have never tried.

ok, just asking. Thx
