(Possibly) important info:
Ubuntu version - 16.04 LTS
GNU Emacs version - 24.5.1
GNU bash version - 4.3.42(1)-release
I'm trying to edit my apache2.conf file in
/etc/apache2/, but using
sudo emacs -mm apache2.conf &
to start Emacs doesn't work. In particular, it doesn't ask me for the root password, and the process just suspends immediately after starting.
bg doesn't work either because the process just suspends again.
When starting Emacs as a foreground process instead, I'm asked for the root password, and the process doesn't suspend.
What might be causing this behavior?
