Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 430129
there should be option to select backend [su/sudo]
Last modified: 2008-01-24 14:47:26 EST
Description of problem:
there's ability to configure sudo, ie. to disable password for executing
commands as root.
usermode should allow to change backend somewhere (maybe in some GUI) to sudo
(but not make it DEFAULT)).
usermode does not use su nor sudo as "backend".
You can do what you need by editing the /etc/security/console.apps/* files - see
In Fedora 9, most of these files will include
/etc/security/console.apps/config-util, so you will be able to configure
system-config-* authentication by editing just this file and /etc/pam.d/config-util.
I just want to disable password dialog since I don't want that password, but
also I don't want to do 'passwd -d root'.
