I grabbed 1.6.8 from the CVS last week and compiled it. I read the
README.LDAP file. I really did not want to store my sudoers file in
LDAP. I just want to have sudo use the unix groups I have stored in
Do I have to have the sudoers file stored in LDAP? I have tried using
just my Unix groups but sudo still seems to be ignoring the ones in
