We got a new LinuxSuMBS class for Linux to run commands as root if needed:
dim s as new LinuxSuMBS s.Command = "/usr/bin/whoami" s.User = "root" s.Alert = "Please Root?" s.Message "Can I install something for you?" if s.ExecuteSudo then MsgBox "OK" else MsgBox s.LastErrorMessage end if
Our example writes a little shell script and runs it as root. Could be useful to write an installer which updates a web app (As example). Of course this is for GUI apps and requires user to enter a root password.
