nice --10 without su


Recommended Posts

Hi, I know i haven't posted in a while been busy at work... its a long story but....

I was wondering if there is anyway to allow me to run the nice command with a negative value without su privileges, I have tried sudo but it doesn't seem to want to work.

The reason is for scripting purposes so I'd rather not have to enter the su password Plus its a wine program so I'd also prefer not to run the program as root.

While I'm here does anyone know how (if you can)  you set the audio backend wine uses from the command line. (all my wine programs use ALSA except one which uses OSS and it a pain in the arse switching with the config program all the time)
