I want to run a Library "Stifte & Mäuse"  developed for Borland Pascal 7.
It originally uses egavga.obj, litt.obj ...

I have already managed to change the sources, that it runs under Linux 	
(kernel 2.4; SuSE  7.1; no major changes) .

But: I need to be root, to start compiled files, thus I get the message
	svgalib: Cannot get I/O permissions. 

The library ist designed for  teaching basics of OOP.  I think, it is no good 
idea, granting the pupils to act as root.  Even sudo seems to be dangerous

Any idea?
