I've added myself into the sudoers users list by using the command
root@debian:/home/oshirowanen#adduser oshirowanen sudo
If I try to run that command again,
root@debian:/home/oshirowanen# adduser oshirowanen sudo The user `oshirowanen' is already a member of `sudo'. root@debian:/home/oshirowanen#
All looks good so far.
When I then exit the root user and try to install/remove/search something using my own account, it doesn't work and complains that I am not a sudoer... For example
root@debian:/home/oshirowanen# exit exit oshirowanen@debian:~$ sudo aptitude search ice [sudo] password for oshirowanen: oshirowanen is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported. oshirowanen@debian:~$
Why is this happening?
This is what I get from
