Code:
saint@TuxSubRosa ~ $ su
Password:
su: Permission denied
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)
Sorry.
saint@TuxSubRosa ~ $


I am very new to Linux. I am running KDE 3.5 and trying to use the su command to gain root privelages. No matter what password I give it it says denied and then those Config Error lines.

:( Any idea why this is happening?


EDIT: Also, my scroll wheel on my mouse will not scroll up and down in the browser. Currently looking for an option for this, but perhaps my mouse was not detected properly?
