Package: strigi-daemon
Version: 0.5.8-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/strigidaemon


In src/daemon/strigithread.cpp, an attempt is made to set
the I/O priority to the IDLE class.   However, the man
page for ionice states that the IDLE scheduling class is
only available for UID=root.

Consequently, strigi's attempt will silently fail
unless the documentation is wrong.   (Since strigi
doesn't seem to be a set-UID program.)

#ifdef HAVE_LINUXIOPRIO
    sys_ioprio_set(IOPRIO_WHO_PROCESS, 0, IOPRIO_CLASS_IDLE);
#endif

The proper solution is probably to try to set it to the
IDLE scheduling class.   If that fails, set it to the
lowest priority in the normal scheduling class.
