View Full Version : YAST Gui without Root Password Prompt

I have configured my sudo file so that a few groups and users have full
sudo access to the server, however one thing I can't seem to figure out
is how to allow the GUI version of YAST to be launched without prompting
for the root password. Is this possible and if so, what needs to be
done to allow this?? I'm not a hardcore Linux guy, so this might be
something relatively easy, but I just can't seem to figure it out.

Thanks in advance!!

Joey

The examples in the /etc/sudoers file may help you, but (without testing
it yet) I'd try this:

%wheel ALL=ALL NOPASSWD: /sbin/yast2

Good luck.

Okay, this one is working for me from the command line (may need to
logout/login for graphical to work... not sure there) for one user:

myuser ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/yast2

and for the wheel group:

%wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/yast2

This may also help you:

Good luck.

It works for the text version, but not when I try to launch YAST in GNOME.
Here's what my sudoers entry looks like:

username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/yast2

I already had a line that allowed all:

username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

Still no luck with YAST in GNOME though. Any additional help is
appreciated!!
