Problem in creating super user account in red hat 5


hi to all

A quick question.

How can add a super user in Red hat Linux?



I created user X. I added X in a group root.

I updated the /etc/sudoers as X ALL=(ALL) ALL



Still, user X doesn’t working as root user.

Do I need to restart the my server ?

Do you have any idea? Please.


Thanks
Vi.

How does "Still, user X doesn’t working as root user. " manifest
itself? What are you trying to do, how are you going about it?



Cheers,
Tink
