AAAAAHHHHH!!! Please consider undoing that change right now:
chown -R root /root
otherwise any process owned by guest can change root's private files.
(Okay, there's probably nothing critical in there, but if you're like me,
there's information in there you don't want anybody getting at.)
I want to shutdown the system from .bash_profile file using
./shutdown -g o
but when I run the file otherthan a superuser it is giving error message as
" to run "shutdown" u must be a root"
but i want to execute shutdown command as a non root user (Ex: guest)
As for your shutdown problem, maybe an suid wrapper script will do the
exec /sbin/shutdown -g o
Save as /usr/local/bin/user-shutdown.
Then create a group called shutdown in your /etc/group file (or use
groupadd). Add the guest user to this group.
Set permissions on /usr/local/bin/user-shutdown so that only members of
the shutdown group can execute it:
chmod 750 /usr/local/bin/user-shutdown
and make it suid:
chmod u+s /usr/local/bin/user-shutdown
I am using Linux fedora core 3.
Even i have used command for changing the ownership as
if u find solution mail me at hvreddy1110 gmail com
