from what i can tell, if i login as root, then use su to change user, roots $PATH follows me. if i login as a user, then su and become root, users $PATH follows me. i dont know if this is suppose to happen, but i swear it never use to (before i updated my system).
however the problem still stands that i cant successfully change the average users $PATH, ive read everywhere that /etc/profile is where i change everyone but roots $PATH, yet when i do this, then login as a user, /sbin doesnt appear on my echo $PATH.
does anyone else but root need access to /sbin, cos if not then it dont matter too much.
