My practice for many years has been to have a root terminal running,
which I start via 'konsole' + 'su'. After a system update + reboot,
I am confronted with :
Warning: Could not find 'su', starting '/bin/bash' instead.
Please check your profile settings.
499: ~> su
bash: su: command not found
I always start from a raw terminal & use 'startx',
so hopefully I can still login as root & do system things that way,
but can anyone suggest what might have caused this problem ?
-- one pkg which was updated was 'shadow' : might that be the cause ?
BTW no-one else has physical access to this machine,
so leaving a root terminal running does not endanger security.
