Subjectvmware strange scheduling priority
Im playing with vmware 4.0 workstation. And it do some strange things.
I start vmware with nice and I got this:
26499 pme 19 19 95980 93M 95020 R N 12 32.6 24.8 8:55
vmware-vmx
26439 pme 19 19 8416 8008 7692 R N 8 3.2 2.0 2:02
vmware-vmx
26492 pme 6 -10 95980 93M 95020 R < 12 2.6 24.8 0:34
vmware-vmx

vmware-vmx


It have changed the prioority to -10 for some of its own tasks. How can
that be done? Its a non suid binary started
by a normal user. It's very ugly, but Im more intressted in how it can
be done.
The kernel is a 2.4.20.
