> Hi all,
> I own the uTorrent-serveur package [1] lots of people asked me to run the utserver deamon as utserver instead of root, so I tried my best with another member, but we can't get it to work right. It works but only after installing it, after a reboot it won't work without any errors. Only way to make it work again is re-installing. Can anyone help me with this PKGBUILD?

Related your question, I don't have a definitive answer, but I just
remembered the package 'virtualbox' [1] creates group in install file
and 'apache' [2] work with a specific user and group as well. Maybe
this could help.

Aside your question, my 2 cents on your package: great organization in
the PKGBUILD, you made it very readable, but you could put double
quote (") on $srcdir and $pkgdir to avoid aur-user with "/srv/folder
with space". Also, if you used 'makepkg --source' to create source
package, you would be able to avoid including
"utorrent-server.install~" and "PKGBUILD~" files.
