Subject: [gentoo-user] Root shell terminates after first keystroke
Date: Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:14:11
1 Tonight, for no apparent reason, a problem has started cropping up when
2 I 'sudo su'. The root shell will start up fine, but after the first time
3 I hit a key, the shell terminates - apparently normally. A sample try
4 looks like this (I begin to type "emerge", with little success):
6 tim@wozniak ~ $ sudo su
7 wozniak tim # eexit
8 tim@wozniak ~ $
10 This occurs no matter how long I wait before hitting a key. Using 'su'
11 without the preceding 'sudo' will let me into a normal root shell
12 without the problem occurring. The problem also occurs only in Konsole,
13 not at a tty. I should mention, based on this, that I'm running KDE4.
14 How might I go about fixing this?
