your running anope as the user "root" - there is no reason to do this.

a root user that can't create another accound... that s a new one :-/

and no that error can't be disabled unles by editing the source code which is not supported and which will make you lose all support

It's a hardcoded error which indeed can't be removed. If you know what you're doing, you should be able to ignore this message. It's mainly targetted at the inexperienced people who don't realise that running anope as root brings a serious security risk.

he pasted a link to the commmand...  no need to specify power or so, there s only one root user on linux, any regular useraccount will do

for example "adduser -p pass user"

Did you change the owner of the files? I bet, the owner of the files is still root. you can change it with chown user.group file(s).
