sudo is an _excellent_ tool for giving non-root users limited privileges. Just because it's not in the FreeBSD base don't hold anything against it. I use it on my FreeBSD boxes so I can install ports and update the machines without needing root. On my OpenBSD box (where sudo is part of the base) I set root's shell back to csh, not tcsh like FreeBSD uses, to make logging in as root so uncomfortable that it forces me to write a sudo permission for repetitive tasks. :) Tom _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
