I saved the file, and sudo no longer works.In the interest of the signal/noise ratio, I thought the point of using visudo is that it does a syntax check on sudoers and won't save the file if there are any errors. Glad you got it fixed, anyway. sonoran https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=22080 2012-04-02T06:01:24Z (HowTos)
