problem with starting new session
I am using mandrake 10. When i choose to start new session, my desktop contantly flickers untill i press ctrl alt f7.
I need to edit the proftpd conf file.It needs root access. In windows, we can choose something like run-as. Is it possible in linus to edit it when i am logged in as some other user (i dont want to logout)?
Can some body help me with this....
