Hi Tim, thanks for the reply. I have not identified yet the problem to be solved. If you refer that I use bash for root is the problem, there is no difference by switching root's shell to sh. With sh as the shell for root: 1. Still cannot login as root from the console. Child process died error. 2. "su -l" doesn't work, child process died error. 3. su works. But the prompt is [...@host name]# Why it doesn't print r...@host? whoami shows root. What is the problem you think that I should fix? any ideas? any thread related error as the child process die when in root?
