Changing System Time
Posted on 2005-05-05
This concerns me a bit. Everytime I want to adjust the Date/Time it asks for my ROOT password. But the problem is, there is an IGNORE button.
Whats the point of having that there anyway if ROOT is the only one to change the time.
So, does this mean Im running as ROOT???? I HOPE NOT.... If not, then why does it have the IGNORE option in the password prompt???
Im running SUSE Linux...
Please explain this... I hope Im not running as ROOT.... I also checked when the output of this command 'id' Please Note: That my Username is 'vin001'
uid=1000(vin001) gid=100(users) groups=16(dialout),33(video),100(users)
Also I did this 'whoami'
What BOTH command's output would say if I were to run as ROOT??? Please explain. I would appreciate it.
But one thing that bugs me if I'm running as my regular user (vin001), then why would it have the IGNORE option on the password prompt then???
