cannot execute some commands as an plain user!
my problem is when I log as 'user', I cannot execute the 'shutdown' command, neither the 'telinit' ... If I log as root, that commands work just fine.
Something similar happens with the aliases... first of all, there is not a '.bashrc'
file in my distro ...guess it's normal, so I discover I can make my aliases in the 'profile' file.... and it works ok...only if I'm root.. if I'm not, there is at least one alias that doesn't work, and it is the one who call the 'clear' command: when I log as user, when I execute 'myClearAlias', it returns me something like: 'can't find command' ..but if I execute the 'clear' command, it works ok... (in all of the unsuccessful cases, the error message is the same: 'can't find command', or something like that -- and ,of course, in the cases that the commad doesn't work, aliases pointing to that command neither works)
does anybody know what's wrong?
thanks in advance.
