Hi,

Im not sure but i think this is the right sub-forum for that error message.

I cannot su anymore , and im getting permission denied when trying to.
I checked the permissions of the "su" binary, but it's ok. Everyone can execute it.

This is a fresh gentoo installation with a 2.6.12 kernel.

any suggestions?
