ls -ld /proc
If you see something like:
dr-xr-x--- 219 root system 0 May 31 09:37 /proc
then the mode "dr-xr-x---" means that only root and people in the
group called "system" can read /proc. One way around this would be to
add whatever user you run mythfrontend as to the system group. (pico
Another way would be to use setuid on mythfrontend. Have a look at
Jarod's guide. I'm sure it's in there somewhere.
If the mode on the directory is already "dr-xr-xr-x", then this
probably isn't your problem.
