>>> I'm searching for a way to have root privileges momentarily
>>> like on ubuntu with the sudo <user> <command>
>>> I tried su - <command> and su -l root <command> on my CentOS server but
>>> it doesn't work
>>> how should I do ?
>>> sorry for the disturbance I'm new in RH Linux distro
>> Sounds like you have your solution... Install sudo and configure it so
>> that particular users can use sudo to temporarily gain root
>> privileges. You may even be able to copy your /etc/sudoers from
>> Ubuntu directly to CentOS.
> there's no way to use su without installing new packages ?
