Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 474224
remove root requirement for cyclictest/signaltest
Last modified: 2016-05-22 19:27:36 EDT
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.
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.
