On 14.04 here. I SSHed into my machine, added the following line to
myuser ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL
And then tried running:
sudo mkdir /etc/blah
...and I'm being asked for my password. Why?!?
I do not want to be asked for my password when doing this operation. Please note that when I run
ls -ltr / I get:
drwxr-xr-x 94 root root 4096 Jul 30 13:28 etc
But I don't think this matters because I've set myself up as a "sudoer", right?
More importantly, what do I need to do so that I can run
sudo mkdir /etc/blah as my current user (
myuser) without being asked for the password?
Here's my entire
