vga_norevokeprivs man page

vga_norevokeprivs — Keep root privileges if run as suid root.

Synopsis

#include <vga.h>

int vga_norevokeprivs(void);

Description

Calling this function prevents svgalib from revoking root privileges and returning to the uid of the user running the program. Usually svgalib revokes privileges at vga_init(3) time, so vga_norevokeprivs needs to be called before vga_init .
