Hi all,

I just installed 1.3b and I noticed that the "su" command never works. Whenever I try it I always get "Permission Denied" even though I know I'm typing in the correct password. Is there some simple solution to this. I'm not very familiar with how gentoo works.

Thanks for any help.

It wouldn't be the reason listed in the FAQ under "Why can't a user su to root?", would it?

See delta? - I'm listening :)

Have you read the docs? (You gotta scroll down a bit)
