SSH service start – Say what?

Posted 13 June 2011 by


o I installed open SSH server on a PC I’ve recently been given and then decided to start the SSH server. As it’s Mint 10, I gather the correct command to use is:

service ssh start

I then got this message:

start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.53" (uid=1000 pid=21628 comm="start) interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init"))

Say what?!?

Well, it turns out that this is actually just another way of saying “You’re not Root” (Sudo). Funny.

Why U no say I not Root?
