Subject: [PATCH] nologin: Prevent error from su -c
Date: Thu, 10 Oct 2019 01:08:25 +0200
Message-ID: <f3a10c86-77a3-06ff-bde0-7822c37292e4@suse.cz> (raw)

"su -c" can pass "-c" to nologin. It causes ugly error:

su -c "echo OK" - man
-nologin: invalid option -- 'c'
Try '-nologin --help' for more information.

Accept -c to prevent this error.
