Notice, I make the distinction between Console and Konsole by making the first letter capitalized. It kind of gets confusing. :/ I had to reboot so I made a new init thingy with the -H switch. It works in Console but nothing root works in KDE. I get the same error. Heck, Konsole won't even try to come up much less ask for my password. Krusader asks for password and says that su is not in the path. This is similar to what I got when I was in a Console too. So, boot without init thingy, everything works fine. Boot with the init thingy, I can't access things in KDE as root. All I do is reboot. I don't change or edit anything other than selecting a different entry in grub. I use Konsole when I emerge and such as that. I use Krusader, since Konqueror developed a bug, to edit config files. I don't care to switch to a Console to emerge something or edit a config file. This is not going to work for me long term. Also, keep in mind, I boot the EXACT same kernel whether I use the init thingy or not. All I do is remove the stuff the init thingy needs to work. Go figure. Dale :-) :-) -- I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or how you interpreted my words! Miss the compile output? Hint: EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--quiet-build=n"
