Unable to run .py file from putty

I am unable to run the python file in putty however when I switch to root user I am able to execute the program.
Please let me know if there is there a way to run the python files as Xilinx user rather than switching to a root user.

Hi @Bhargava_Upadhya,

MMIO uses /dev/mem to communicate with the PL. /dev/mem can only be accessed by root.

You may be able to change the permission of /dev/mem or add the xilinx user to the group that can access /dev/mem. You can search online how to do this.

There may be other parts of that pynq package that needs root access as well.
