Give certain users more access to resources


http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=168441

Basically, I am running xmms as root and seeing the songs play smoothly and fast. When I run xmms as a low/normal user, xmms is slow and laggy. Since there are only two users, i want the normal user to have just as much access to resources as root does.

How can i give my normal user more access to resources?

I use a 3-tiered permission system where I put 'power' users in the group 'wheel' and then give them ALL COMMANDS without password permission in /etc/sudoers. You can customize this more if you want.
