Slack 13.37 and /etc/suauth


In Slack 13.37 it seems su ignores /etc/suath. I added:
Code:
root:ALL:DENY
but even after logout I am able to su into root account as an ordinary user.

I tried AlienBOB's (0600), and arniekat's (0440) recommended permissions, but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with that.

I know there is SU_WHEEL_ONLY option in /etc/login.defs, but I already wrote a full page tutorial based on AlienBOB's and arniekat's articles.

Is /etc/suath depreciated or what (no man page either in Slack 13.37)?

What is the alternative (beside sudo and /etc/login.defs option)?

Was it intentional that you two times wrote "suath"? It should be "/etc/suauth" I guess, just a short guess.

It's "suauth" and if you run "man suauth" you will still get to see the man page. Spelling is an art.
