I have a live USB persistent version of Ubuntu 11.04 installed with Unetbootin.
After some time I experienced some bugs while upgrading the kernel and trying to use my second screen on my laptop. Later then I noticed a strange, apparently unrelated problem: each time i tried to
something i got the same response :
sudo: can't open /etc/sudoers: No such file or directory sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting
Unable to do anything requiring root privileges, I rebooted using the
single boot option and was able to access the root console.
I noticed the following behavior :
# ll /etc/sudoers -r--r----- 0 root root 1014 2011-05-31 16:23 /etc/sudoers # cat /etc/sudoers cat: /etc/sudoers: No such file or directory
Is there something wrong with the hard link count being zero ? How can i change it ? The hard link count is 1 on my other computer which work correctly.
The live session user still belongs to the admin group if it matters.
