Description pyatkov 1999-08-04 16:05:32 UTC
I run RH 6.0 as root with bash. If I try to execute login in
an xterm it closes the xterm and doesn't leave any traces in
/var/log neithe dumps core.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-04 16:32:59 UTC
The login in util-linux is a little different than other unixes
(because of the need to preserve a PAM session>)

Try "su - user" from your xterm instead.
