Description of problem:
The path variable is not correctly set/changes when using a terminal in the
"user" accound using "su" to gain root.
( im sorry if this is the wrong bug group, could not find the right one)
after loggin in to gnome or kde pick the terminal from the "redhat-start" menu.
su to a root accound.
try to run ifconfig or anything else in the /sbin/ directory.
comands can not be found.
path variable for root to /sbin/ is not set su-ing from a user account
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.log as a user ( using x)
2.start the terminal
3.su to root
5.command not found ( path not found.)
Actual Results: command not found error.
Expected Results: ifconfig shoud have started nicely.
this is a low prio bug for experianced users. newbies will find this a
showstopper ( not being able to execute simple commands)
Just doing 'su' does not get you a new login environment, you need to use 'su -'
if you wish to get your environment set up with root's path, etc.
