Patch-proposal for makepkg: be able to use su for installations even if sudo is installedview story

http://archlinux.2023198.n4.nabble.com – Hi, at the moment makepkg will use sudo to obtain root privileges if it is installed, otherwise it will use su. This means that if sudo is configured to only allow special commands (and none of those is "pacman"), "makepkg -i" will fail to install the built package. (Distributions)

I was pretty confused by the fact that I will receive a "reset password" email. (Distributions)

Fw: Re: Password reset (reg mailbox has been deleted)view story

http://archlinux.2023198.n4.nabble.com – Ciao Giancarlo, OK. Let it be. I'll create a new account for that. But wonder whether my old one will be purged somewhen and I will be able to use my old username? - If it is non-active for a long period of time, why to keep it anyway? But, of course, I understand that there is no way to prove its privacy though. > I don't think there is much help for you. (Distributions)
