I wanted to grant access to all executable files in a
particular directory, so in the sudoers file I have
But sudo will deny access to the commands in this
directory unless you specify them by their FULL
The following examples result in a "user is not
allowed to execute" error:
but if /my/path/runit is added to the sudoers file
then all of the above succeed in invoking runit.
Is there a reason why an entry in sudoers which ends
in a * MUST have its full pathname specified in the
sudo command? It had me well confused for a while.
(I'm using v1.6.8p4)
