HI, I installed freebsd 5.0 and I made a mistake at install, well ok I made a lot of mistakes but have sorted thru most of them. One thing I'm having trouble with is how to add my user account to the wheel group so i can become su. I tried /stand/sysinstall but couldn't see a option to edit user accounts only create new ones. Can someone help me out here?
I reinstalled kubuntu and upgraded from dapper to edgy. Amazingly, in edgy, sudo works fine. I not only able to type sudo, but it asks me for the password again, before executing the command, and of course, it asks me again if i close the shell or if i've been idle for a while.
Don't know what's the difference here. I'll have a look at the sudoers and group files in /etc/ to see what i can find.
Thanks a lot guys, i ended up knowing much more than i used to be, so thanks again, you guys rule!
the discussion was about getting su ability in FreeBSD but turned to Kubuntu?
Anyway even I wanted this facility so added my name to wheel line in /etc/group as root and then logged out and logged back as normal user(the user name I added to wheel line). Now I can use the su facility.
Thanks anomie and phil.
