Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 134590
Change from using su to runuser in initscripts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
We have created a newversion of the su command called runuser, which
will run a program as a different user. The command can only be run
as root and will not use pam or prompt for passwords. Otherwise it
works exactly as su. This change is needed by SELinux in order to
support proper transitioning on process execution.
