'su -' fails for root
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:42:43 EDT
Logged in on the console as root, context is root:sysadm_r:sysadm_t
'su -' fails with 'su: incorrect password'.
It should work.
How does this bug differ from
The errors didn't seem to come from the tty stuff. I'll need to get
the full list.
Now that I've had a chance to look at this, I can't reproduce it. :-/
From a clean rawhide-20040303 install, logging in as root on VT1 and
running 'su -' works, saying:
Your default context is root:sysadm_r:sysadm_t
Do you want to choose a different one? [n]
and 'exit' brings me back to the original shell. Same in
gnome-terminal from a root login via gdm.
Policy changed quite a bit. Will reopen if it persists.
