I am in the root group of a suse machine but when I use
sudo -u <myAccount> ...
I get a
Root privileges are required for...
a few terminal commands:
$ cat /etc/sudoers: ALL ALL=(ALL) ALL root = ALL(ALL) ALL $grep root /etc/group: root:x:0:<myAccount> $ grep x:0 /etc/passwd: root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash $ getent passwd | cut -d : -f 1 | xargs groups <myAccount> : users root
I don't know, am I missing something? I can't use the "real" root password as I am not privileged here.
