su or sudo dont work
« on: August 06, 2009, 10:00:59 AM »
I added a new user into TC, when I do: su under this user, I got the following message:
su: must be suid to work properly

when I use putty to log remotely using ssh and do su or sudo I got the following message (trembb is my username):
trembb is not in the sudoers file.

thanks for your help

you need to add rules for that user in the /etc/sudoers file, something like:
trembb ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL
"Never give up! Never surrender!" - Commander Peter Quincy Taggart

"Make it so." - Captain Picard
