I recently installed MintPPC 9 (http://mintppc.org
) onto an older G$ powerbook I had lying around. After switching out the video driver its looking good, but for some reason the graphical version of sudo doesn't accept my password.
For example, when I click the update notification, it tells me three updates are available, and asks the sudo password, which it never accepts (I've tried it enough to know I am not mistyping).
When I run:
~ $ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install
[sudo] password for jas:
then it runs just fine, although it doesn't find any updates for me, and tells me 2 packages are not upgraded.
