Description Clark Williams 2008-12-02 16:06:46 EST
Description of problem:

Cyclictest and signaltest require that they be run as root, when what they really need is to be able to change the scheduler policy and lock memory.
Comment 2 David Sommerseth 2009-03-23 16:15:10 EDT
Created an unprivileged user account on a freshly installed box, and assigned it as a member of the realtime group.  Ran cyclictest and signaltest without any problems as this unprivileged user.
