    Permission for sysfs entries


    im not able to write into some of the sysfs from user space. It says "permission denied"
    In kernel , the permission has been set to "644", But when i try to modify the sysfs from HAL layer , i get a permission issue. How do i solve this?

    Are you trying to do this as a normal user, or as root? You have to be root to do this.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
