comment Notify when normal user changes to root?
@Fran No. Well when the username logs in to SSH he then use su instead direct root.

comment Notify when normal user changes to root?
@fran SSH brute force attack. I already have my SSH on different port as well as blocking failed login attempts but a little more security like this won't hurt. How this works is, in case the brute-forcer finds out the port, he will still have to know the username because root is disabled.

@speakr Well my plan is only one normal user will be given root, I want to do this just to prevent brute forcing root. So direct root is disabled and that single normal user must use su

comment PuTTY stuck when using du command
Hmm, during the first attempts it's taking really long then it disconnects. Then at one point it still took really long but it finished. Do you think there's a bad disk block, sign of dying HDD?
