I can't dettach from the dark side... i need a few windows programs :)
On another thread i asked about a linux software that played compressed archive files (e.g. mp3 album on a .rar file)... it seems there isn't one (no, Amarok doesn't support KIOs). Therefore i got foobar2000 working in wine.
The problem is that i get plenty of "glitches" with Wine. In windows playback was always smooth and sweet like ahh... smooth and sweet things :rolleyes:
I need to do 2 things:
1) increase wine priority for the specific foobar2000 "thread"
2) deny any network access to foobar2000 (it isn't open source so...)
P1) i'm not having any luck with nice :(
I tried sudoers: me ALL=(ALL) /usr/bin/nice
Also tried a shell script with suid bit set
And another thing, since linux dynamically changes processes priorities, isn't there any way to avoid that process' priority from being changed?
P2) I used Sygate in windows which gave me a lot of control over programs. With iptables things are more complicated :/
I know there is -m owner --cmd-owner but this doesn't seem to work very well.
Are there any jails (à lá BSD) in Linux?
Another option i see is creating a specific user for wine programs. But is this safe (spyware, overflows, etc)?
Thank you for your time and suggestions.
