I am working on a large program in C to run on Puppy Linux. I have multiple pthreads running. I want to be able to set the pthread SCHED_POLICY and priority in my program but I want a user to be able to run the program without root privilege.
Using a sticky bit and root ownership gives the user too much power because they will be able to write and compile their own scripts.
Is there a way to use 'sudo' when I set the thread parameters from my program or something like this?
