i created a user now that user isnt having permission to view some parts of directories like lilo.conf file n many others i want to make the user i created equal to superuser..i know i can change the permission of file but i dont want to do that and change the user i created preference to that of superuser so that i couldnt be prompt for p/w hope u got it this time
ah... you can use sudo for that...
it isn't the greatest idea but I'm not gonna bitch because I do it as well..
I think adding the user to the adm group will have an effect but I've never done it.. I have a friend who does that though..
but you'll have to edit /etc/sudoers, you're supposed to do this with visudo but I've never had problems editing it with pico or vi
read man sudo for help.. also, taking a look at your /etc/sudoers might make it obvious what you have to do
those.. though being good points.. are ones I choose to disregard.. simply for the sake of convenience.. I do this on my personal box and NOT my server.. also.. I wouldn't recommend asking questions like this in a public forum. you get much negative feedback.. and really .. it is deserved.. but.. it's still up to you..
