sudo 1.7.2

I have created PETs for sudo in the Quirky repo, usable by all Woof-built puppies:


The PETs (51KB, 32KB, 47KB):

The main PET only has 'sudo', and does not have /etc/sudoers. There is a template for sudo in Woof that deletes /etc/sudoers in any other sudo package. /etc/sudoers is intended to be supplied in rootfs-skeleton.

The DEV PET has 'visudo', used to edit /etc/sudoers.

/etc/sudoers can only be edited using visudo

Any user with sudo privileges has to be included in this file e.g. for user "another_user"

# User privilege specification
another_user ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

Works this way in Ubuntu.Worth a try

Re /etc/sudoers
"/etc/sudoers can only be edited using visudo "
No. root can do it, spot can do it, you can do it:
# mp /etc/sudoers
And I did it, copied Barry's entries into it. See my comment "Having Fun With Sudo"

Using "another_user ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL" would mean giving spot root privileges in general.

The problem which has not yet been solved is just getting the password...

may be of use...

this link may be helpful... apparently some later sudo versions break pam, and dodgy visudo setup can cause constant bad passwords as well..
