Sudo 1.6.9p20 on 11.23


I'm looking for an HP software depot with a pre compiled source for Sudo 1.6.9p20.
Alternatively, if someone can provide step by step instructions for compiling and upgrading
from version 1.6.8p12 on 11.23 it would be very much appreciated.

Thank You

Just downloaded below sudo depot, ftp'ed it to a test server (binary), run gunzip and it unzipped without an error.

Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Hi do you have HP's precompiled version of sudo? I've downloaded this product for our machines and its fairly easy. If not its part of the freely downloaded iexpress:


If you want to use this version to replace your old version (and I'm paraphrasing from a previous thread that I used to setup my iexpress sudo).
1. login as root
2. Backup your sudoers file that is located in either /etc/ or /opt/iexpress/sudo/etc
3. Remove your current version of sudo by swremove or if it wasn't installed as a package remove the binaries and manpages
4. Download and install the new iexpress sudo with swinstall and select sudo
5. The new sudoers file is in /opt/iexpress/sudo/etc/ copy your old sudoers permissions into new sudoers.
6. Check sudo binaries. $which sudo should point you to correct file. If not create links in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin for sudo and visudo.
7. Check your manpath to sudo. The new man path is located in /opt/iexpress/sudo/man
