MacOS - run MCreator as root?
Fri, 11/13/2015 - 08:56


I just downloaded MCreator and wanted to try it on Mac OS X (10.9). Everything is fine until I want to build and export a mod. Then MCreator asks me for root (sudo) password in Terminal. If I start MCreator as root (sudo java ...) everything works.

(How) can I change this behaviour? I think no application should run with root privileges - this is a big security vulnerability!
