I have the root account enabled. I have degraded the user (say kenneth) to a standard account and I have set the
Defaults rootpw flag in sudoers.
When I use sudo it correctly prompt for root password, but then it returns
kenneth is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
I'm asking this question here (AskUbuntu) because I have 3 other Linux systems and the same problem doesn't occur there. Is there any difference(any significant change that apply only on Ubuntu) that I have to know or I'm missing something else ?
