1/28    When I installed Debian, it suggested I run the Xserver with nice = -10.
        Where can I change that value?
        \_ Why would you want to stale your Debian?
        \_ figure out where the xserver is getting launched from
                \_ yeah, startx -> xinit -> XFree86, I believe,
                   but in none of the config and xserverrc files can
                   I find anything about "nice" or "10"
                   \_ do you need to do a man nice?
                        \_ I did. Did I miss the answer to my question?
                           I know I can "renice" X, but i want to change
                           its the nice value it starts with.
                           \_ that's the difference between nice and
                              renice, bozo
                                \_ You are not nice.
                           \_ no, really, you need to do a man nice.
                                \_ whatever. I want to locate the
                                   file that determines the priority of
                                   my Xserver. are you saying, "just run
                                   'nice 0 startx'", cause that is not
                                   what I'm looking to do.
