.SH NOTES
This program needs permisison to the video hardware, this normally requires
root access.  One way to accomplish this is by making
.BI "fceu-svga " suid-root.
An easy way to do this is using the
.BR dpkg-statoverride
command.  For example, as root on a
.I Debian
system run:
.PP
.B dpkg-statoverride --update --add root games 04755 /usr/games/fceu-svga
.PP
This will ensure that the setuid bit is preserved across package upgrades.
