- Subject: Can't switch to another user.
I am a first time user and having problem using login. When I try to
login as another user it goes through the authentication and finally
fails. See the full transcript attached below.
$ login localcontrol
No directory /home/LocalService!
Logging in with home = "/".
You are successfully logged in to this server!!!
login: no shell: /bin/tcsh: Permission denied
I installed cygwin from the internet using setup.exe (for all users). My
account has admin privileages on this machine (so does the localcontrol
account). While I am quite familar with Unix/Linux, I am a novice when
it comes to windows world. Please help.
I am having minor difficulty in subscribing to this list. While I am
working through that issue, please, if do not mind, cc replies to me also.
Thanks and Regards
