Thread: sux in opensuse 11 ??? Where is it ?

  1. #1

    Default sux in opensuse 11 ??? Where is it ?

    It looks like sux has been removed from opensuse 11. How do I get root with X forwarding support under a basic userprofile ??

    Is there a replacement ?

    Do I really have to log out of X each time I need to perform an admin task for which I need X in a terminal ??

    I hope the 10.3 package works on opensuse 11.

    You can do one of the following options:

    1. Use kdesu <program>
    2. Search the menu for System->Terminals->Terminal superuser mode

    I think you are looking for ' su - ' or gnomesu / kdesu or similar?

    Not sure what you mean with X forwarding?

    Su has integrated X forwarding support, and sux has just been a link to su,
    for some time now. Try

    % ls -l `which sux`

    on 10.3 for fun. :-)

    So just use su where you used to use sux, and it should all work.
    ("Should" as in "Murphy lives", that is. ;-)
