comment su authentication failure after setting new password
I fixed it. I had to set the sticky bit of the su binary! So when I did chmod +s /bin/su, I could "su" with the changed root password.Thanks for all your help

comment How do I kill all a user's processes using their UID
@Caleb: I wanted to kill processes by reading the /proc as I didn't know of any tool doing it. Also now I find that other than "kill", "pkill", "skill" etc are not available on my system. In that case I guess I have to look at shell script alternatives to read the /proc and figure out a way to get processes under one user. Any ideas?
