    • Setup sudo

      07 November 2007

      Fedora, like all other Linux distributions, has a root user and has
      individual users. The root is the “superuser", somewhat similar to
      “Administrator" in Windows.

      Use the personal account you created at First Boot for daily use root only for administration/configuration. To run as ‘root’ use su or sudo commands. However sudo requires setup. As root run:

      echo 'loginname ALL=(ALL) ALL' >> /etc/sudoers
      Where 'loginname' is your user account.
      Use 'ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL' if you don't want to be prompted a password.
      If you are prompted for a password with 'sudo' it is the user password, not root.


      [mirandam@charon ~]$ su
      Password:    <--- Enter root password
      [root@charon mirandam]# echo 'mirandam ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL' >> /etc/sudoers
      [root@charon mirandam]# exit

      The following is an example of how sudo lets you execute root commands:

      [mirandam@charon ~]$ du -sh /root
      du: `/root': Permission denied  <--- Fails!!!
      [mirandam@charon ~]$ sudo du -sh /root
      163M    /root                   <--- Works!!!

      NOTE: Every command provided on this page will work if you remove sudo from the command. However this requires you must be logged in as ‘root’. An alternative to using sudo is to use su to login as root, before executing a command.
