Hi, I know there has been enough discussion on this, but still cant
find the right answer.
If I change the /etc/sudoers file by visudo and try to give any user
root access, why cant i use adduser, or passwd?
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
zix ALL=(ALL) ALL
[zix@dns comps]$ adduser zix1
adduser: unable to lock password file
passwd: Only root can specify a user name.
how do I make the change?any quick help please, somebody..
Sudo means access control through "sudo" command. So, try:
$ sudo adduser zix1
That user (zix) needs to give his/her own address.
oops, then i dont want in that way..i want a user who has full access
rites as root.how do i do that?no sudo...and yes, i do understand the
security risks, so please no advice why i should not give fll root
access to users :-)
i have tried addgroup...it didnt help..any other ways of doing that?
