You need to edit the sudoers file. You should find a copy that works and make yours look like that. (Hint: you need to add a line with your user name and the word ALL in it.) You can edit it with any editor, or if you know vi, then you can use visudo. You will have to have admin privileges to do this, so if you can't su to root, you will need to find out how to do that, first.

And of course, if you can do that, you don't need sudo. To me, sudo is  a fine tool if you want to give access to a few admin tools to people who don't (and shouldn't) know the root password. However, I can't see the point of using it if you're the person who installed Linux and created the root password.

That approach for installing the Flash player is about the worst way to manage it. You'll have to manually handle all updates, and Flash is a nasty piece of work that you really should keep up to date, so that you
don't suffer an exploit. You've got to know when an update is available, or keep on checking for one yourself.

On the other hand, if you'd installed the appropriate yum repo for your type of computer (32-bit or 64-bit), then any time you do a "yum update" to update all the software on your computer, then *all* the software
gets the lastest versions that are available to install. The same applies for when updates are triggered by a GUI telling you that updates are available.

On my fedora 16 box using httpd.x86_64 2.2.21-1.fc16, using SSL,

I tried:

 RewriteCond %{REMOTE_USER} ^mike$

and variations thereof.

My intention is to have the RewriteRule run iff "mike" is logged on. It didn't work.

I have added a new service which starts a second httpd instance in fedora 19. The pid of the process is stored in /run/http-xxx directory, and my problem is that this directory disappears after each reboot.

How can I stop the system from deleting this folder in /run?

I put an IPv4 entry for a server in my /etc/hosts file. I can 'ping alice', but 'host alice' comes back with:

Host alice not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

I have this vague memory from years back about a file that set precedence of hosts file and dns for fqdn lookup. Can't remember it of find it.

Of course the problem might simply be the host command is incapable of processing the /etc/hosts file?

Any suggestions?

I have been having a problem with TB for quite some time, and I am getting rather tired of the problem.

Images in messages that are sent to me by users of windows are not displayed in TB. Rather, all I see are empty boxes where images are supposed to be.

This is not to say that every message I get from windows users containing images are treated this way by TB.

I am just saying that some individuals I know, who use windows, and send me email containing images are treated this way by TB.

Is there a setting that I need to set?

When I installed virt-manager in Ubuntu, it created a network bridge called virbr0. Now that I have installed virt-manager in Fedora 19, it did not create a network bridge. So how do I create a network bridge? Is virt-manager supposed to create a network bridge?

I installed virt-manager using the following command.

sudo yum install virt-manager

Are there any more rpm packages which I am supposed to install?
