I am a new sudo user. I just downloaded version 1.6.2p2 onto an hpux 10.20
I decided not to use logging via syslog as my syslog daemon keeps stuffing
I modified the configure script line:

I changed it to :
#define LOGGING SLOG_FILE
and re-issued the 'make' and it was now working.
I set the alternate log file in the sudoers file and it is now working as I
So what went wrong initially? Is this a bug?
Also the man page on sudoers is not very clear on which defaults can be
The list of parameters does not include 'logfile' but one of the example lines
Is there a complete list out there?
