Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22181
su root Does not open root commands
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:11 EDT
After assigning a user su rights including access to linuxconf, I exit, log in as the new user, open terminal, issue "su" and enter root
password. The problem is that access to linuxconf is not allowed "command not found", even when I enter the directory where linuxconf
is located I receive the same error.
Your PATH does not change unless you use "su -" to get root access. The current
directory is not in the default PATH (as a security measure). Use "su -" and
"linuxconf" to start linuxconf, or "su", and "/sbin/linuxconf".
