Description of problem: After updating from Fedora 16 Beta to 3.1.0-0.rc9.git0.0.fc16.i686, the sudoers file has no effect on the user even when he is in the wheel group. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sudo-1.8.1p2-2.fc16.i686 How reproducible: Update to kernel 3.1.0-0.rc9.git0.0.fc16.i686 and run sudo command. Steps to Reproduce: 1. open terminal in XFCE 2. run sudo command 3. Actual results: Prompts for password and then says "USER is not in the sudoers file". Expected results: root access Additional info: the wheel group has been enabled with visudo and the USER is in the wheel group in /etc/group file.

I am also suffering from this bug. Installed F16 Beta from the DVD, updated to latest updates which included kernel-3.1.0-0.rc9.git0.0.fc16.x86_64 sudo-1.8.1p2-2.fc16.x86_64 Now the sudo command no longer works for me. I am in the wheel group and the wheel group is in the sudoers file, but when sudo is invoked it tells me I am not in the sudoers file. I tried setting selinux to permissive mode, but that didn't make a difference.

Booting my previous kernel, kernel-3.1.0-0.rc6.git0.3.fc16.x86_64, has no effect either. :-/

In fact the version of sudo hasn't changed since I installed from the DVD, so something else has screwed it. Anyone have any ideas what packages I could try downgrading?
