Adding your username to Sudo List in Fedora

Just trying new Fedora Release 11, but I cannot do software update by using the user which I created after first boot. The error message says "the user is now in sudo list". I think most of you might had same issue, and I found the following solution for you.

Log in as root.

su --login

Add your user to the sudoers file.

echo 'your_plain_loginname_here ALL=(ALL) ALL’ >> /etc/sudoers

Now the error message should be gone!

One more tips for those users had Linux box behind the firewall, and you want to download software via Text Internet. You can do it in 2 ways, one is permanently add the following line in the profile, or type the following line in the terminal window:

export http_proxy="http://your_proxy_server_address:port"
