Kubuntu and sudo ???

Posted 07-15-2006 at 08:46 AM by bigjohn

Well I'm really starting to get pissed off with kubuntu and it's use of sudo to run/administrate things.

It would appear that the only way round this issue, is to modify the sudoers file so that only root can do stuff with sudo - which defeats the object of making it work like that i.e. if I still have to use sudo to run/administrate the system, but I've set the sudo to only be used by root, then what the bloody point of having sudo installed other than it's what "they"...

reading a cd

Posted 07-13-2006 at 08:09 PM by bill06812

I have successfully downloaded Simply Mepis on my old ex-98windows pc. My problem is I don't know how to read a CD. In Windows it either just started, or I just doubled clicked on it and it would get going. How do I do the same thing on LINUX. Thanks. Bill
