Hi all,

I was getting ready for a system update, and emerged the latest gcc first. For some reason, after that I can no longer su from my usual login. All it says it "permission denied. sorry"

I can login initially as root, but I'd prefer not to do that. Any ideas?

thanks,
Jim

Thanks for the response! That was the problem.

I guess my question now becomes: what groups should I be a member of?
