  1. never build as root. It even tells you not to
  2. don't know why ./loolwsd wants to write to /var/log/loolwsd, that looks odd, maybe an option exists to specify the log path
  3. for development related questions you may get better answers in the developers' IRC channel or mailing list

Thanks for the advices. I'll try to clarify this issue with the developers. Yes, I believe that there is an option to define this log path but I searched for it and I didn't find nothing
