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.

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
Actual results:
Prompts for password and then says "USER is not in the sudoers file".

Expected results:

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


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. :-/
Comment 3 Mat Booth 2011-10-17 16:16:18 EDT
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?
