You need to have root permissions in order to use the real time clock. This can be done one of two ways, you can either:

a) Run tvtime as root, which is not very practical, or...

b) make tvtime setuid with "chmod u+s /usr/bin/tvtime". This will allow a regular user to run tvtime with root permissions. Don't worry, tvtime drops root permissions as soon as it gets access to what it needs, which is pretty quickly in the code.
