Commands do not exist :-s


Hi,

I recently changed the way I can login to my Linux box over SSH by not being able to login as root but using the sudo command when logged in as a normal user.

Now when this was done strangest thing I cant use commands such as

adduser
service

and yet i have used the su command to get root privelages.
Any ideas?

/usr/sbin/adduser
/sbin/service

Many of these paths are not in the non-root user's path (you can get root's environment if you use "su -"); to find their location you can use "whereis ..."
