Hi. I don`t know why, 'su' command doesn`t work ! I mean.. when i`m typing : su <enter>, and then system is asking for password. Even if im typing RIGHT password, the result is :
su Permission denied. Sorry.

What should I do ? maybe add/change some group permissions ?! It doesn`t seem, there is any group in /etc/group that fits :/

The user trying to use "su" must be a member of the "wheel" group. Is he?
