comment How do you get NOPASSWD sudo option to work in Fedora 15?
Please correct me but. The original ordering makes it so that my NOPASSWD line is overrided by the "%wheel" line which forces you to always enter a password, correct?

the solution was to move my NOPASSWD line so that it came AFTER the "%wheel" line!

oh my bad. I had selective hearing... when I read your answer I thought it said 'you should not be editing the sudoers file with gvim'. When in reality you are saying "if you need to call a graphical program like gvim you can't use 'sudo'".

Chris and @nico, both of you are correct. The problem was in the ordering of the sudoers file.

FYI, if you read my post it says " I use sudo visudo to modify sudoers file".

comment How do I find a command if I don't know its name?
+1 for discovering that apropos is man -k and discovering that man -K is a more powerful apropos (more powerful because it searches the entire command description).

comment RHEL/CentOS: Installing a new version of Java, why not just change the path?
yum for centOS gets an older java... i want latest/greatest. hence manually getting latest java and doing what I am doing.
