The elevated privilege is not a state thus any time you need to run a
sequence of commands which require it as a state it fails. Yes, I
consider having to prefix multiple commands with sudo as a failure, esp
when some of those commands are shorter than sudo, such as the above
case with ls.
Of course I get around it by simply putting the following alias in my
.zshrc file on Ubuntu systems:
root = "sudo su -s"
The non-Ubuntu systems have a similar alias:
root = "su -s"
Hmmm, I think it is -s. Might me -s -. Oh well.
