Description Daniel Walsh 2004-10-04 17:02:35 EDT
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.

Hi Dan,
are you sure slrn is the right package to complain about that? ;-)
I doubt slocate is the right one.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-10-06 10:25:04 EDT
Not sure what you mean.

 /etc/cron.daily/slrnpull-expire contains a "su" command that should
be  changed to runuser.

Ok, slrn- fixed this.
