Sudo and Fedora


Friday, I installed Fedora to a VirtualBox VM.

I was distressed to see the Fedora seems to have caught a case of Ubuntu.

It did not ask me to create a root password and, after I rebooted into the VM and ran, in a terminal,

Code:
sudo dnf upgrade
Fedora displayed the usual sudo warning ("Great power brings great responsibility" blah blah blah), then executed the command.

Needless to say, I quick like a bunny created a root password so I could use su for root tasks as the *nix creators intended.

Looks like that change happened with Workstation version 28.

Nice catch - I was going to mention I've never run into this, but that I haven't done a clean install since probably F24 or so. The updates these days are excellent.
Being old-school I use root a fair bit, but I'm slowly learning to use sudo too - has its uses if properly set up.

I not to long ago did a fresh install using Fedora 29. I was prompted for a root p/w during install. Sudo is still there, but thankfully true root exists in Fedora 29.

YAY! This is great news for Fedora users.
