I have executed 'login' command in bash shell from root account which closed the shell
But, if i execute the same 'login' command in bash shell from non -root account, it is asking for username & password again
And idea why the shell is closed from root account?
I'm having a weird issue. When I put my password using my account (ramiz) on the login screen of GUI, a blink of screen and it take me back to the login screen. I tried with Guest user and it is logging me in. I also tried Ctrl+ATL+F1 to switch to command mode and try to login there with sudo -s.
I am new to Linux. I have read a lot of articles about Login Shell vs Non-Login Shell but I am still confused. In the following scenarios, may I know whether the user is using a Login Shell or a Non-Login Shell?
Case 1 - One PC is using Linux without GUI. The user can login to his account from the command line.
I recently loaded Ubuntu Server 32bit as i really want to learn about servers and how to make a pc log into a server etc.
After about 8 attempts i got it installed and i boot up and it asks for a login?
normal with Linux you use root in stead of admin.
But no where when installing did it ask me for a "ROOT"password. it asked me for my password.
