Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 746684
Sudo command has no effect
Last modified: 2011-10-17 16:25:50 EDT
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):
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
Prompts for password and then says "USER is not in the sudoers file".
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. :-/
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?
This looks like a dupe of 745675
