I've been doing some rearrangement on my system (SUSE 11.1) using the
command su in order to run
root required commands. All of a sudden the su command no longer works.
The following is an example
of what has happened:

eck@linux-dria:~>su
Password:
linux-dria:/home/eck # df
linux-dria:/home/eck # cd /
linux-dria:/ #ls -lag
linux-dria:/ #

Notice that nothing happens. What might of happened to cause this?

I can login to one of the virtual terminals as root and there is no problem.

Thank for any ideas,
Terry
