sudo password


I was installing Mac theme in my fedora 10 and it asked for the sudo password. I have encountered it earlier also. Please tell me how can I configure my sudo password. Thanks!

Your sudo password is your user password that you use to login.

Give you user account password.
sudo password="your user account password"

Unless the setup on F10 is different from other distros, it should be your normal password.

Hi,

The password will be your normal account password.

Unlike Ubuntu, Fedora does not add users to the sudoers file by default. Your account is in the sudoers file? run:

visudo

Check the man page for help.
