Description Jonathan Loh 2004-07-11 16:32:30 EDT
In /etc/login.defs 
SU_WHEEL_ONLY     YES
should allow only members of group wheel to su to root.  However, this
does not work.  My user is not a member of the wheel group and yet he
still can login to root.
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2004-07-19 07:13:29 EDT
RH is using /bin/login from util-linux and not from shadow-utils, so
not full functionality from shadow-utils is guaranteed.
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-08-03 14:23:31 EDT
Comment 1: Agreed. Closing as not a bug, as we prefer behavior from
util-linux.
