You end up in different directories
Authored by: googoo on Jan 27, '04 09:46:39PM

The command "sudo -s" starts a root shell but leaves you in the same directory from which you invoked it. The command "sudo su -" logs you into a root shell in root's home directory (/var/root/). Since I am often already in the directory I want to modify, I like "sudo -s."
