    sudo password...gone


    Im learning how to use sudo.

    the first time you run it, it asks for a password. I don't remember setting it and I don't know how to reset it. I guess I could do NOPASSWD: but that's not directly addrssing the problem.

    How do I reset the sudo password?

    I dont know for sure, but I believe you need your own login password. (not root's pw, but your own)

    I swear by sudo. It rox. When you set it up, you had several spots to drop your group/login into for admin rights. If you are getting propmted for a password, its your login's password, not root.
