"WARNING Will Robinson - DANGER!" Etc.
I am an I.T. professional with over 25 years experience (started with CP/M before DOS was invented) so I do understand the risks.
I am trying Ubuntu 12.04 as a second O.S. It is a Sandbox, nothing more. I DO NOT CARE ABOOUT SECURITY on this machine. It is a sandbox.
As I am experimenting I am making constant changes and am getting to the point of uninstalling and giving up because of constantly being asked to tap in the same blasted password every few seconds.
I have done a little digging and came up with - run "sudo EDITOR=gedit visudo" and edit the file.
Yes, 'me' is the user I chose as it is a Sandbox and I can't be bothered. Anyway, It does not work. I am STILL being pestered.
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
me ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
me ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
me ALL=(ALL@ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
# See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives:
me ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL
me ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/apt-get update
me ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/apt-get install *
Before I delete the partition and go back to Windows, can anyone tell me what I did wrong?
