    Hi everyone,

    is it right that entware does not offer coreutils-su? Tomato mod by shibby has su not integrated and due I switched from optware to entware I'm missing that Feature.

    Can anyone give me advice? ^^ thanks in advance!

    This is the first I've heard of any of the firmwares being used with non-root users, which is the only real purpose behind using su.

    Regardless: use sudo instead.

    P.S. -- For Entware questions/support, this is not the place to ask. Entware has its own ticketing/support system which you should use.

    is sudo integrated in Tomato? Cause this command is not found ^^

    EDIT: yes I created for testing purposes a Special account - not member of root's Group ;)

    Quoting your initial post:

    Go install sudo.

    Sweet! Thank you :) i was just thinking to complex i think

    Just if anybody will find this thread:
    Solution was:

    opkg install sudo
    afterwars edit file /opt/etc/sudoers or use the Editor visudo

    Please do not edit /opt/etc/sudoers directly. Always use visudo.

    This is made crystal clear in the default sudoers file, which says this at the top:

    ## This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
    ## Failure to use 'visudo' may result in syntax or file permission errors
    ## that prevent sudo from running.
    The visudo command honours the $VISUAL environment variable for its editor. So if you happen to dislike the vi editor and prefer something else (like, say, having installed emacs from Entware), just export VISUAL=emacs and use visudo.
