User cannot set process priority nice --10 despite changes in limits.conf
 
Hello,

I'm trying to allow user hlds to be able to start game server daemon with higher priority. Even though I've added fallowing line in /etc/security/limits.conf

#<domain> <type> <item> <value>
#

#* soft core 0
#root hard core 100000
#* hard rss 10000
#@student hard nproc 20
#@faculty soft nproc 20
#@faculty hard nproc 50
#ftp hard nproc 0
#ftp - chroot /ftp
#@student - maxlogins 4

# End of file
hlds - nice -20
I'm still getting

Kod:
starach@debian:/> nice --5 cat logfile
nice: cannot set niceness: Permission deniedWhat could I have done wrong?

Doesn't look to me like you're running the command as the user you
specified in limits.conf.

You are completely correct but despite my mistake on trying to
reproduce this problem on different machine it still remains.
hlds@gserver:/> nice --5 cat logfile
nice: cannot set niceness: Permission denied
