Passwordless SU

1. Edit /etc/pam.d/su, after
auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_rootok.so
auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_listfile.so item=ruser \

2. Create a /etc/security/su-nopass file, and it put one username per line. Only put users that you want to have access to root without a password.
3. Double check the permissions on the file, we don’t want it world writable, and world readable is a matter of personal preference.

Reactia Mozilla: stati domne asa ca noi nici nu l-am lansat, nu e gata, nu-l descarcati!!!




Si a doua la mana pentru ca pe serverul lor de irc se poarta discutii de genul:
