Subject: [linux-audio-dev] Announce: GIVERTCAP - capability handler (fwd)
[This is a resend, it seems my first attemp did not get there]
GIVERTCAP is a small Linux application that is used to give other
application real-time capabilities. With the aid of givertcap you can
run real-time applications (audio and video -processing apps for
example) with high priority without running the application as
root. Your application does get a collection capabilities that allow
it to run at very high priority.
Givertcap was created to overcome the lack of capability support in
Linux file systems. Once the Linux file systems start to have the
necessary functions themselves, this apps becomes unnecessary.
To use this app you need to compile it and make it setuid-root. After
this other applications can use this mini-app to gain capabilities
that are necessary for real-time operation.
