I have this really strange problem that i've never had before. Im using Slackware 13.1, with XFCE. The system was just installed on my laptop, and has not been connected to the internet. My user '0men' is in the sudoers file.
Here's whats going on....
Say i want to edit my firewall, i would do
sudo nano /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall
That's normal the first time but .. From now on, Sudo doesn't care about my password. I can edit any file from now on without my password. I was reading up and i found some patchy information that stated sudo normally 'hangs' around for 10 minutes or so.
However if i close the terminal and leave the machine for half an hour and then try and edit the same file. Sudo will still not ask for a password.
This is strange and i've never had it happen on a Slackware machine before. Just to be sure, i re-installed, still the same problem though. None of the other 3 Slackware box's i have here, have experienced the problem.
Does anyone have any ideas ? Its really starting to do my head in !
I appreciate any help/input/experiences/solutions you may have.
what would i do without LQ !!
