Use "su -", not "su". I'm actively wondering if there's any reason to
keep the "su" default behavior around. It just keeps harming us again
Hi Vincent, hi Frank, hello all,
I think this should at least be reflected in the documentation.
But there is used the su program without even mentioning the login shell
( --log/ -l/ -) option:
Reference > Chapter 21. Shell Basics > 21.4. Becoming Root > 21.4.1.
I rate the hole reworking and expand the printed/book like manuals was a
great operation (that should be mentioned in the 'highlights' article of
11.4). But maybe it some background (like: su versus su- ; what are
gnomesu, kdesu, gksu, gksudo, xdg-su -c "[command]", ....like?) and
explanations could be done in the wiki (at least as an unstable/stage
version before including it/parts of it to the manuals)?
