sudo build/configure

Hi all,

I'm configuring a new installation of HP-UX 11.31 (Itanium) and have installed sudo from the HP-UX porting and archive center:

 

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/sudo​-1.8.9p1

 

I used the depothelper script to install all the necessary requirements and it installed fine as shown below.

 

# swlist -l product sudo
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "ragnar"...
#
# Target:  ragnar:/
#

  sudo          1.8.9p1        sudo

 

In reading the /usr/local/doc items it is clear that sudo will not work out of the box and the sudoers file needs to be built/configured. Fine...in reading the INSTALL it says to run ./configure (in the source or build directory) and the script will do its part.

Problem is, I don't see a "configure" file in the build directory. I see that various sudo related items got installed in /usr/local, but I don't see the configure file it is talking about....so any idea how I build this thing?

 

I don't recall having to go through all this last time I installed sudo...but that was waaay back at 11.11...and I haven't done it since.

 

Thanks in advance

Mauro

Re: sudo build/configure

That 'configure' message sounds like a generic README and doesn't apply to sudo.

Just run:

 

visudo

 

and add your entries.

Re: sudo build/configure

Ok Bill, so you're thinking that I can just just start creating the sudoers file (visudo)?

 

Thanks

Re: sudo build/configure

Correct. sudo is a simple program with just one config file: sudoers
