I was doing a emerge -u world. and after it was done, my su permissions seemed to be messed up. I have tested this out in both X and tty. The problem is that my basic user cannnot use the su script, but root can, so I'm concluding that it's a permissions error.

What is the correct permissions for su and how do I set it that way through the CLI?

As far as I know, a way to check?

Also is there a way to check my emerge history?

Do
Code:
# groups <user>
to check. If your user is not in the wheel group, do
Code:
# gpasswd -a <user> wheel
For emerge history, read /var/log/emerge.log, or emerge genlop and do
Code:
# genlop -l

Thanks very much. That solved it. When I was trying to get my external HD automounting I happened to use the wrong command which messed with my group orienation. Everything's back up and running, and maybe groups even solved my automounting issue
