sudo not working, sudoers edited
I su'd and used visudo to edit my sudoers file which has the following

root ALL=(ALL) ALL
noshow ALL=(ALL) ALL

when logged in as noshow and I do "sudo visudo" i get

"noshow is not allowed to run sudo on x17r1. This incident will be reported"

If I add in a Default asking for root password it will prompt me but then tell me im not allowed.

Any solutions?

I'd suggest checking Slackware's bug tracking system for distro or version specific bugs. FWIW, this Ubuntu system has the following in /etc/sudoers, and sudo works OK:

# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

That sorta fixed my problem. I had to make my user part of a group and give that group permission to sudo
