I've seen this on the formum, but none help:
None of the users can "sudo" or access admin privileges on my SuSE93 box, when prompt for password it's stated as "incorrect"
-I can still log as root
-I changed the root password
-All users (3) face the same issue.
-Main User is set to group Wheel (thsi doesn't look to dangerous to edit)
At some point on these forums, I found advice on the need to do "visudo" (edit my sudoers' profile specs). It looks frightening, I don't wan't to play with that fiel without a bit more assistance.
-Name of my main user: "jph"
-Name of restricted users (no admin, no root shell, but dvdrom mount, scanning & printing ok): "moufflets";"poutou"
-Actual content of my sudoers:
# 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
Defaults targetpw # ask for the password of the target user i.e. root
%users ALL=(ALL) ALL # WARNING! Only use this together with 'Defaults targetpw'!
# Runas alias specification
# User privilege specification
root 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
Word of advice ?
