I'm not exactly new to Linux, been using it for almost a year now. But I am new to Slackware.
I just installed Slackware 11.0 and cant' figure out how to give my non-root user Sudo access. I entered the user in the sudoers file with the All command, but when I go to use sudo I get the following error.
edward is not allowed to run sudo on edward. This incident will be reported.
below is a copy of my sudoers file entries, did I put something in there wrong or did I miss some info when I set it up.
# sudoers file.
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file.
# Host alias specification
# User alias specification
# Cmnd alias specification
# Defaults specification
# Runas alias specification
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
edward All=(ALL) ALL
# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
# %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
# Same thing without a password
# %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
# %users ALL=/sbin/mount /cdrom,/sbin/umount /cdrom
# %users localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now
Any help would be appreciated.
