Sudo password for users, a.k.a. sudoers
Question: When I run the sudo command as a user (micro420), I am still asked for the ROOT password. How do I accept the user password in SuSE? Apparently this is NOT the case with other distros.

I ran the 'visudo' command to add my name to the list of users that can run the sudo command.


#User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
micro420 ALL=(ALL) ALL

look in your /etc/sudoers file and make sure that "targetpw" flag is not enabled in Defaults or something

Removing the 'targetpw' did the trick!

Now to figure out how to give certain privileges to users...
