easy sudo question


Hello penguins, I'm stumped again, it's easy I know, it always is, it's just.... Okay, I'm trying to get sudo to stop logging via syslog, this is done in the sudoers file. I have read the man page, there is no direct mention of the method though, I've gotten this far.

Defaults syslog= (what now?)

The man page says "negate", how exactly (this is the stupid question I think).
Help

Thank you, bests -cg

Well, I guess I should wait until someone who actually knows answers this one, but have you given /dev/null a try?

I would think that would be what it's asking for.

If that doesn't work, since I answered without knowing, I will be glad to research that fully and find a more acurate answer. Good Luck, and let me know if it works.

Cool

Try "false", 0, or simple "n"/"no", I don't think "nope" will work though, in the man page it said these strings can be changed in boolean context - false and true are as the same as 0 and 1 respectively, I've never had a chance tinkering with with it though, so trial-and-error should lead you to a solution.

A little update
number 0 should work as negation.
Happy hacking!!!
