Dear users

Thankyou for taking the time to read this
First time posting
Please accept my apologies if i am posting in the wrong place
( I would welcome direction to the right place if this the case )

Installed latest version on repl and trying to figure out the best way to
run the program
It works well as root

But if i run as non root i get the following errors when trying to bring a
connection up
allow ps -ax shows charon running with the appropriate non root user uid

allocating SPI failed: Operation not permitted
unable to get SPI for regid
unable to allocate SPI's from kernel

Its not clear from the documentation whether libcap is required or not
Currently libcap not installed id prefer not to have to use it

thanks for your help again
