OpenSuSE tumbleweed switched to using /etc/sudoers.d which broke yast module sudo somewhere mid 2020

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/09

Mid 2020, I re-installed a Raspberry Pi 2 box based on OpenSuSE Tumbleweed.

To my susprise the yast2 module sudo could not write the configuration.

It appeared that /etc/sudoers had become readonly and a new /etc/sudoers.d was created.

You can use visudo to edit files in that directory without potentially losing changes in /etc/sudoers during upgrades. I think that is a good move.

To bad the yast module failed because of it.

More on visudo and the /etc/sudoers.d directory:
