Reminder to self: nosudoers changed in Raspbian…

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/31

So I won’t forget: trying to make sense of this incomprehensible message (and the update on a Raspberry Pi takes looooooooong and while updating, the file /etc/sudoers.d/010_pi-nopasswd does not exist yet)

20161018+1 reintroduces passwordless sudo for pi user even if previously removed · Issue #6 · RPi-Distro/raspberrypi-sys-mods [WayBack]

raspberrypi-sys-mods (20161018+3) jessie; urgency=medium

  * The 20161018 release has introduced a /etc/sudoers.d/010_pi-nopasswd file.
    - The file is installed even if the "pi ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" entry has been
      previously removed from /etc/sudoers by the user.
    - If you do not want the entry to exist, please comment out or remove 010_pi-nopasswd.
    - If upgrading to 20161018+3 from a version earlier than 20161018, the line in
      010_pi-nopasswd is automatically commented out if the entry doesn't exist in sudoers.

    Did you ever revisit this?

      Not yet, sorry. I’ve been running OpenSuSE Tumbleweed on my Raspberry devices, but as soon as I need pi-hole again, I will likely dig into this issue first.
