Automatic renice

 Do you know a way to set the niceness of a process without typing renice 
at the command line after each reboot? Especially when renicing to -10, 
which needs to be root... 

 Problem : xmms skips sometimes due to the -ck patches ; I'd like to keep 
the patches, KDE is much more responsive, and setting xmms to -10 
(everything else is 0).

 As a last solution, I'd cron a script as root to renice automatically, 
but I can't obtain a list of the xmms processes (' ps -A | grep xmms | 
awk "{print $1}" ' gives the whole line, same with 'cut -f1  -d" "'


PS : I've tried the schedutils, they don't seem t be useful.
