Nice and Renice
Ideally I would like to run a <command> the following from *my* regular (non root) user:
nice --7 <command>
However it would appear (for good reasons!) that a regular user cannot execute a command with a nice level of -7. Only root can do this. Is there a way around this without giving *my* regular user exactly the same rights as root? (not even sure that this possible!)
It would seem that I have to use another option which is to use the renice command with root after the regular user has launched the <command>:
renice -7 -g <PID of the <command>)
Is this the only way to achieve what I want without running the <command> as root??
Many thanks for any help!
