Kernel re-prioritizing X (ioperm?)..
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
The default kernel automagically nices X to -10. Why is the kernel futzing
with userland process priorities?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X. Or boot into runlevel 5.
2. ps -efl |grep X or top
3. Cock head sideways at the X process priority.
X is niced -10.
X should be regular priority unless launched otherwise.
I think it's much more sane to prioritize X by start-up scripts instead of
handling it via the kernel. I really don't think the kernel should molest
userland priorities as such.
Setting to low/high as I think it's a low priority but it's a severe mistake
