Description Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-12 06:58:41 UTC
Sudo recently started redirecting the stdout of the commands somewhere

It works correctly on Fedora Core 1:

% /usr/bin/sudo echo foo > /dev/null
% rpm -q sudo

But fails in Raw Hide:

% /usr/bin/sudo echo foo > /dev/null
% sudo-1.6.7p5-18

P.S. really annoying - for example, things like

sudo grep something /var/log/something | less

no longer work as expected :-(

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-03-15 09:58:29 UTC
I can not reproduce this bug:

$ /usr/bin/sudo echo foo > /dev/null
$ rpm -q sudo

$ sudo grep kernel /var/log/messages | less
Works, too.

Do you have any special settings for root?

> Do you have any special settings for root?

I do not believe so.

Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2004-03-16 10:35:25 UTC
Perhaps this is some shell issue. From the prompt, it looks like you,
Aleksey use csh/tcsh while Thomas uses bash. Is it like this?

Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-16 11:09:56 UTC
Yes, I use tcsh, but the root's shell is still bash.

Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2004-03-16 16:01:56 UTC
This is an error in the SElinux patch for sudo.

Comment 7 Thomas Woerner 2004-03-17 16:24:59 UTC
Fixed in rawhide in rpm sudo-1.6.7p5-20 or newer.

Comment 8 Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-18 03:52:46 UTC
Confirming fixed.
