Package: spectre-meltdown-checker
Version: 0.32-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I was trying to run spectre-meltdown-checker as a normal user first -

/home/shirish> spectre-meltdown-checker
Spectre and Meltdown mitigation detection tool v0.32

Note that you should launch this script with root privileges to get
accurate information.
We'll proceed but you might see permission denied errors.
To run it as root, you can try the following command: sudo

if it needs roots privileges, shouldn't it be in
/usr/sbin/spectre-meltdown-checker ?

It kinda feels twisted especially when you see that it's the kernel
which is being looked into,
not the userspace.
