Updated usermode package for Mandrake
Posted by philipp on: 03/13/2003 10:50 AM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
MandrakeSoft has released updated usermode packages for Mandrake Linux
The /usr/bin/shutdown command that comes with the usermode package can be executed by local users to shutdown all running processes and drop into a root shell. This command is not really needed to shutdown a system, so it has been removed and all users are encouraged to upgrade. Please note that the user must have local console access in order to obtain a root shell in this fashion.
