RE: [suse-security] su - huh?



Hi Eric,

you might get stderror and stdout combine by inserting

"exec 2>&1"

at the beginning of the profile. So you will se everything the shell
produces. Additionally you might  want to use

"exec > /tmp/profile.out 2>&1"

in order to store everything into a file.
