Ubuntu :: Make Sudo Act More Like The Debian Sudo?

Jul 2, 2011

I have read a lot of questions from people wanting to take Debian (or some other distribution) and make its sudo command act more like the way Ubuntu's sudo does. I want to do the exact opposite, I want to make Ubuntu's sudo command act more like the sudo command from another distribution. ie I want there to be one root password

Debian :: Checkinstall" Seems To Be Not Installed "sudo Apt-get Make" Does Not Workcheckinstall" Seems To Be Not Installed "sudo Apt-get Make" Does Not Work

Feb 12, 2011

So installing a programm is a problem. I like to install Aqualung. "/.configure" works. But "make" seems to be not installed. "checkinstall" seems to be not installed "sudo apt-get make" does not work. I have no internet connection with linux, because I have no idea how I install the network card. I guess this sudo command use internet? Is there another way to compile that program? (And just by the way, why must this be so difficult?

Debian :: Build Process - Use Sudo For Make Install - Difference?

Dec 26, 2010

What are the differences if I build (./configure, make, make install) an app when log in as root vs a "regular" user other than I have to use sudo for make install? If an app is built from a non-root account, will it be available to every other user on the system?

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?

General :: Make Sudo Ask For The Root Password?

Jul 9, 2010

When I run sudo as a normal unprivileged user, it asks for my password, not the root password. That's often convenient, but it reduces the amount of information someone would have to have in order to run commands as root. So how can I make sudo ask for the root password instead of the invoking user's password? I know it'd be done with a line in /etc/sudoers, but I can never seem to properly parse the BNF grammar in the man page to figure out exactly what to write.

Ubuntu Servers :: Slow Sudo After Accidental Change / Make It Up?

Feb 5, 2010

My first post. I've been using Ubuntu Server edition (Hardy) happily for some time now.

I use sudo regularly during configuration of new services. It always works/authorises within seconds, however, it recently became very slow, to the point of being nearly unusable.

In /var/log/auth.log I noticed a regular working pattern like this code...

General :: Make Shared Keys .ssh/authorized_keys And Sudo Work Together?

Jul 15, 2010

I've setup the .ssh/authorized_keys and am able to login with the new "user" using the pub/private key ... I have also added "user" to the sudoers list ... the problem I have now is when I try to execute a sudo command, something simple like:

$ sudo cd /root

it will prompt me for my password, which I enter, but it doesn't work (I am using the private key password I set)Also, ive disabled the users password using

$ passwd -l user

I am trying to harden my system ... the ultimate goal is to use pub/private keys to do logins versus simple password authentication. I've figured out how to set all that up via the authorized_keys file.Additionally I will ultimately prevent server logins through the root account. But before I do that I need sudo to work for a second user (the user which I will be login into the system with all the time).

For this second user I want to prevent regular password logins and force only pub/private key logins, if I don't lock the user via" passwd -l user ... then if i dont use a key, i can still get into the server with a regular password.But more importantly I need to get sudo to work with a pub/private key setup with a user whos had his/her password disabled.

1) I've adjusted /etc/ssh/sshd_config and set PasswordAuthentication no This will prevent ssh password logins (be sure to have a working public/private key setup prior to doing this

2) I've adjusted the sudoers list visudo and added

root ALL=(ALL) ALL

3) root is the only user account that will have a password, I am testing with two user accounts "dimas" and "sherry" which do not have a password set (passwords are blank, passwd -d user)

The above essentially prevents everyone from logging into the system with passwords (a public/private key must be setup). Additionally users in the sudoers list have admin abilities. They can also su to different accounts. So basically "dimas" can sudo su sherry, however "dimas can NOT do su sherry. Similarly any user NOT in the sudoers list can NOT do su user or sudo su user.

Debian :: Can't Get Sudo / Admin Privileges

Jan 11, 2016

receive bash notice: "jim is not in the sudoers file."Just finished my first Debian install several hours ago, my first go around w/Debian. Installed 8.2 DVD ISO on USB. Had this issue from my first use in BASH, not a forgotten password problem. So 2 questions:

1) I'll be installing Debian again, and want to avoid this in future. There were 2 inputs on setup for name (my full name) and user (installer offered my first name which I accepted). 2 inputs for Password as well: I used the same password both times (have done this w/Mint & Ubuntu w/out issue).

2) How to fix this? Tried this: URL...however, neither keystroke got me to "rescue" prompt as article suggests. Several other articles presume an admin with privileges has sudo access to modify sudoers file.

I have multi-boot setup in BING environment (MBR, not EFI). I am booting from a GRUB2 ISO using grub commands as I still need GRUB installed in my boot partition until I can get cmd line access. I'm able to get a session on boot with the same password I used in setup.

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.

Debian :: Can't Sign In Using Sudo In Terminal

Jul 23, 2010

I'm having trouble signing in using the sudo in the terminal.

I enter in the line: sudo abc (username = abc)

I get the line returned: [sudo] password for abc:

If I enter my normal login pw i get the message:

abc is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

If I enter the root pw I get the message: Sorry, try again.

I've just set up the debian OS and am trying to learn the linux way but it's a bit frustrating. so when I set up the system originally It had me make two passwords one for root and one for my user acct. So how do I get the sudo terminal to work?

Debian Configuration :: Kdesudo Error (same For Sudo)

Sep 21, 2015

Seems like this is a running issue. also, sudo returns "The value user is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported" kdeusu just makes a noise and returns nothing.. In the past i had a workaround of using nautilus, but, nautilus seems to be missing from jessie repo (same for gnome files).

[URL] ... ssoo... this happened and it seems to be going somewhere, but, i can't really make sense of it, and there was no solution..

Also found this [URL] .... and the pathnames should be fine but i don't want to go around arbitrarly entering commands

There was also [URL] .... which only mentions using kdesu which... doesn't really 'exist' anymore.
