I have installed ZSH two days ago and i have a small problem: when i do "su" and become root the prompt isn't colored. How can i solve this?

This is my zshrc

Code:
# Lines configured by zsh-newuser-install
HISTFILE=~/.histfile
HISTSIZE=8092
SAVEHIST=8092
setopt autocd
bindkey -v
# End of lines configured by zsh-newuser-install
# The following lines were added by compinstall
zstyle :compinstall filename '/home/polslinux/.zshrc'

#autoload -U colors && colors

autoload -Uz compinit
compinit

# End of lines added by compinstall

autoload -U compinit promptinit
compinit
promptinit; prompt gentoo

alias ls="ls --color=auto"

Is this your ~/.zshrc or your /etc/zsh/zshrc? Once you call sudo all your user settings are lost, so if it is your ~/.zshrc you need a similiar /root/.zshrc.

Not really your question, but anyway, let me advertise from the mv overlay: More advanced prompt app-shells/set_prompt, and maybe you want to give also the /etc/zsh/zshrc from app-shells/zshrc-mv a try...
