@mat if it were packaged, he could say apt-get build-deps oprofile. Gentoo isn't the first to specify dependencies, they only decided to reinvent the wheel again... and I doubt any distribution can fully automatically infer dependencies from an unseen configure script.

comment Root access that can't change root password?
Which is why I stated that in my first sentence: "screws up ... other than that, you trust ... fully". This is really only a "support access" solution; not a security feature. Using additional root ssh keys achieves the same, without being hackish.

In fact, it's even documented in FreeBSD (with the suggestion to also having a different, statically linked, shell on that account): freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/…

@alexis That is what IMHO the author of the question asked for. Why give -1 for this? toor recovery accounts has been a common practise (although frowned upon) on Unix for decades.

That is what I'm saying. You can use the toor password to log in, even when the main admin changed the primary root password. SELinux could prevent the user from really changing the password, but it requires much more effort to setup and administrate.
