Duh, noone replied. Now I had to stop being lazy again ;) Found the culprit: PAM is set up so only users in the "wheel" group can use "su". Either add trusted users to "wheel" or go to /etc/pam.d, edit the su file and remove the "auth required /lib/security/pam_wheel.so use_uid" line Greets, Olivier - -- ________________________________________________ Olivier Reisch doctomoe@××××××.org TuxPPC Site Director http://www.tuxppc.org The number one user resource for Linux on PPC.
