# Run Programs with Root Privileges

On a realtime system, you have to use root priviledges to run an application. This is for the fact that the Executor tries to change thread priorities and the scheduling principle to realtime characteristics.
If you run your EEROS application without root priviledges you will get a warning that this change could not happen and your application will most probably violate your realtime criteria.
