Fixing Sudo in Fedora Core
Here’s how to get SUDO working in Fedora Core Linux
So you just installed a fresh copy of Fedora Core Linux. Everyone knows you aren’t supposed to use root (Don’t they?). During the installation you created a new user named superman. You finish the install, and logon as superman. You deside to update Fedora using yum. You go to a command prompt and type sudo yum check-update. You get some funky error message saying you’re not allowed to sudo.
- Open a terminal program (command prompt).
- Type: su –
- Type: usermod superman -a -G wheel
- Log off, and when you log back on you should be able to use sudo!
Glad I could help!
