running an app under root in the debugger
« on: February 28, 2007, 10:46:28 pm »
I'm working in Linux and need to run my application as root in the debugger.  Has anyone figured out how to do this? 

Thanks!

Can you run your application as root and then attach to the running process? Select Debug > Attach Debugger > ... and select the appropriate debugger. I'm not sure if there's a permissions problem with this. I leave that to those with more experience in Linux.
