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.)


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.
