Having a problem with sudo. I'm down as a user who can run all commands as root provided I enter my password. The relevant line from my /etc/sudoers file :
user1 ALL=(ALL) ALL
There are several commands that I run quite frequently such as mount and fdisk but would like to avoid having to enter a password each time I use them. What would be the appropriate change to the sudoers file ?
I neglected to scroll down to the bottom of the /etc/sudoers file where there was the line :
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
and since user1 was a member of the admin group any predeeding lines were being overidden by this. Commenting out this line and adding
user1 ALL= NOPASSWD: /bin/mount, /sbin/fdisk
solved the problem.
