That's a rather bad idea security wise and shouldn't be needed.
@Kevin Johnson: There are several things you have to check before this will
actually work. First of all, make sure mythfrontend is started from user that
is in the audio group. Otherwise either change @audio to @whatever_group the
user is in or just replace @audio with only the user who is starting
mythfrontend. Also the changes will only take effect in any new session, so a
logout and login is required. That should get you going without setting it
Nevertheless, it might be possible that mythfrontend reports it's setting
realtime priority without actually doing it which you can check with top or
schedtool or whatever is included in mythbuntu. This is a known bug and I
already know what's the culprit. I'll post a patch on trac later this week
when I get some free time...
Hope that helps you.
