The package net-im/discord-bin I emerged gives a bizarre error

[2423:0607/084900.780913;FATAL;atom_main_delegate.cc(211)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported. see https://crbug.com/638180
Trace/breakpoint trap

very odd...

The linked bug is about chrome(?) and also mentions starting it as root which is not neede in the most cases.

I think discord-bin is a repackaged Chrome so that they can claim their webapp is a native application.

Very likely a NW.js application.

Chrome and discord require the user namespace kernel feature to function as non root. Verify this is enabled in your kernel config and if not change recompile reboot and retest with user namespaces support enabled.

It is nice what a browser can do, but isn't this overkill?
