949Re: [redhat] User with Root power
- Oct 5, 2000That Sucks... but I don't think I have PAM.... I have SlackWare 7, not RH.
Anyway, there is a internet service that on IRC network I'm on uses and
sometimes I do a who and I see root logged in on pts/0 or some # like
that... how did they do this? The main reason I would like root login
remote would be so I have complete control without several "layers" down
with users between. I would like not to get on the server console if needed,
even tho it is sitting in my room :P

Yup, just like root. Both root and this new user are UID 0, so as far as
the system's concerned, both are root. The PAM routines that control
login go by UID, not username.
