Sudo FAQ

Post date: February 26, 2007, 21:02 Category: Security Views: 4234 Comments

In order to use sudo you need to configure it properly. This FAQ is supposed to help you with this task.

Post date: April 13, 2005, 19:04 Category: System Views: 5739 Comments
Tutorial quote: My reasoning for combining the traditional Debian apt command with Mepis was speed and efficiency. Also, in the fine tradition of open source, I could choose to use the command line instead of the Kpackage or Mepis System Center package management screen. This is a good way to learn about Debian systems that builds confidence for new users right off the bat.
