I am the only user on my machine, and prefer not to type
sudo every time I use
dhclient. Therefore, I tried
sudo chmod u+s /sbin/dhclient.
However, when I subsequently run
dhclient wlan0 from a non-root shell, I still get
RTNETLINK answers: Operation not permitted
I am running
Why does setting the
UID bit not achieve the desired effect, and are there any workarounds?
