Hi! I'm kinda new to unixes and I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I'm sure it's a pretty dumb question, but I can't seem to be able to figure it out.
Is there a way to run programs like linuxconf without logging as root? Ie. if I log on as a regular user then su to get to root, I can't run stuff like linuxconf, shutdown... Is there a way to run them without exiting to the first logging prompt and reloging in as root?
The reason I ask is that I recently installed Bastille-Linux (www.bastille-linux.org
) on top of RH7.1 and checked the option to restrict the root login (can't log as root directly, must log as regular user then su). So now I have no idea how to run the stuff mentionned above and I'm kinda stuck.
Any help would be appreciated.
