[sudo] password for fedjond:
fedjond is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
Can you point it out please?
thanks for your time
Point out what? That the security on your box is working exactly the way it should be?
You are a non-root user, and are obviously denied access to the file. Either run that command as root (NOT recommended), or use the proper method and run visudo, to put yourself in the sudo'ers file. If you're not in sudoers, you won't be able to run sudo commands, no matter what password, or how many times you try.
Run "su - root", log in as root, and run visudoers to add your user.
