  • I am new to linux, and I was trying to figure out why I could not sudo with my username in Fedora 10. This command, when run as root, will add a line to the sudoers file allowing the loginname supplied to sudo. The above line will require a password when you sudo, if you wish to sudo without password, use: echo 'loginname ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL' >> /etc/sudoers instead. you have to run this command as su, and this is just an easier way of using visudo, just adds it right from the terminal.

    echo 'loginname ALL=(ALL) ALL' >> /etc/sudoers
