Running from eclipse as root?

Hello all.

I’m able to run and debug the code on the beagleboard using Eclipse, but it requires root privileges. How do I go about setting that up?

Best regards,

Hello all.

Why did you install Eclipse as root? If you install Eclipse as a regular user, you won’t have this problem. Are you using plain Eclipse or are you using Code Composer Studio CCSV5?

Ugh, I didn’t explain this properly. My code running on beagle requires root. When using eclipse to remotely run and debug the code fails due to insufficient privileges.

Thanks,

So why does your code need to run as root? This is never a good idea.

I understand that and I realize there are ways of doing it, but for early development this is the simplest way of doing it.
