Ubuntu :: Sudo Ifconfig Eth0 Down Vs Sudo /etc/init.d/networking Stop

Jun 10, 2010

explain the difference between these two commands. I'm currently reading about changing your mac address and both of these commands show up a lot. They sound like the same thing to me. Is one better than the other, or do you need to use both to change your mac address?

sudo ifconfig eth0 down
sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop

Fedora Security :: Cannot Open /var/db/sudo After Sudo Package Upgrade?

Sep 16, 2010

A day ago I finally got around to upgrading the PackageKit installation that had been sitting for a week and a half, so I found a new upgrade for sudo available - the one that gives the sudoreplay command, I forget which version number it is exactly. When I try to use the sudo command I get this notice in my terminal:Code:Can't open /var/db/sudo/me/1: Permission deniedI didn't get it before. What do I have to do to make it open? I'm using SELinux in enforcing mode if that helps.

General :: What's The Difference Between Sudo Su - And Sudo -i

Jun 19, 2011

It is my understanding that they do the same: they ask for my password (if I am allowed in /etc/sudoers), and give me a login shell as root.

Is there any difference between them?

sudo su -
sudo -i

Also, what's the difference between

sudo su
sudo -s

I think that they both ask for my password, and give me a shell with my old environment variables.

Fedora Security :: Terminal Equivalent Of "sudo" Is It Still Sudo/KDEsudo

May 29, 2010

I am new to fedora (been using debian based distro's for the longest time). With the new release I decided to give FC13 (The kde 64 bit spin) a try. I told it to wipe my entire hdd and encrypt the partitions. The partition manager made a few LVM partitions which I assume are encrypted.

The problem I am having is that if I attempt to use an application that would normally need root access to run, I am not prompted to enter my root password. Instead, I am required to logout and log back in as root. Is there a way to make it so that FC13 will prompt me to enter in my root password so I do not need to log in and out? Or is there something Different I should have done during the install process? Also, what is the terminal equivalent of "sudo" in fedora, or is it still sudo/KDEsudo

I also have not used SE Linux before. Do I need to manually enforce the permissions for my applications and generate my own profiles for it, or is that done automatically?

I try to run a command located in /sbin or /usr/sbin using sudo, like "sudo ifconfig" or "sudo tail -f /var/log/messages", it comes back with "command not found". If I perform a "sudo -i" and drop to a root shell that way, the commands work fine. My sudoers file is as follows:

General :: How To Alias A Command For Sudo

Sep 25, 2010

I have an alias that I would like to use both as a regular user and as root, via sudo. Specifically, it is this:

alias rm=trash This works fine as a normal user, and it works fine when I use sudo -i to get a root shell prompt, but if I use sudo rm, the alias does not apply. So where do I need to put my alias so that it works in one-off sudo commands?

General :: Execute A Command After Sudo?

May 4, 2011

I am working in a CentOS environment with numerous CentOS machines. Currently there are multiple developers that each have their own login/home directory and then for various admin tasks we all share a single super user account.

The problem

I have a number of aliases, variables, functions, and settings that exist in my personal login's .bash_profile. None of these are available in the shared super user's .bash_profile. My current work around is that everytime I sudo in as the super user and I re-execute my .bash_profile from my personal user's home directory. I am not allowed to edit the init stuff for the super user

The Question

Is there any way I can automate my sudo sequence such that it will execute my personal .bash_profile after I've executed sudo without requiring me to edit the super user's bash init stuff?

Debian :: Sudo Command Not Found?

Mar 5, 2010

I've just installed Debian on my old iMac G3. The install seemed to go ok but failed to load to the GUI. Thats ok I'll just enter some lines into the xorg.conf and it will be fine, or so I thought. Now at the shell prompt when I type in any sudo command it says: "sudo command not found" Is there an alternate command I can use in this situation.

Ubuntu :: Su Command Won't Work, But Sudo Will?

Oct 16, 2010

I was attempting to install the fglrx driver on my new ubuntu insallation, following a guide I found from google. At one point it says I need to login as super user, so I tried and no matter how many times I try it just keeps saying authentication failed. I even tried typing in my password with 1 finger, multiple times, every single time, authentication failed. So I decided to try the sudo command with fdisk -l, worked flawlessly. Tried the su command again, authentication failed, I have no idea what in heck is causing this but it just won't stop happening.

OpenSUSE :: Setup The Sudo Insults Command?

Jun 13, 2011

How do you setup the sudo command so that it will insult the user if they enter the wrong password? I know it sounds kind of random, but I found that it was an option while looking up something else. I tried adding "Defaults insults" using visudo, and commenting out "Defaults targetpw" and "ALL ALL=(ALL) ALL", and adding my username as "blank888 ALL=(ALL) ALL" but I still can't get it to work right.
