Smile installing LTIB problem and cant set the user privilege section

when I was installing Linux Target Image Builder(LTIB) I got the follwing errors

[rohith@sdalinar cwf]$ cd /home/rohith/cwf/ltib-mpc8555cds-20060124/

[rohith@sdalinar ltib-mpc8555cds-20060124]$ ./ltib

I ran the command: sudo -S -l which returned:


This means you don't have sudo permission to execute rpm commands as root
without a password. This is needed for this build script to operate correctly.

To configure this, as root using the command "/usr/sbin/visudo",
and add the following line in the User privilege section:

rohith ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/rpm, /opt/freescale/ltib/usr/bin/rpm

Started: Tue Feb 5 10:12:17 2008
Ended: Tue Feb 5 10:12:21 2008
Elapsed: 4 seconds

Build failures :
Abnormal exit : yes

Exiting on error or interrupt
and when I opened vi /usr/sbin/visudo

it shows like this
