Hi

You can add the following snippet to the fedora-desktop ks file into a init
script to make sudo just work for the first user. It can't be added to %post
since firstboot wouldn't have launched then. Let me know what you think:

I'm not sure what the point of this is honestly - you already know who
the user is on the LiveCD, so you can just give them sudo in %post.

Sure but I am not talking about this at all. Only for the install case.

For the install case (which I think is what you're getting at here), I
personally would rather fix this the Right Way(TM) for both LiveCD and
installations from DVD, which is to give %wheel sudo in the sudo
package, and offers an option in firstboot 'Make this user an
administrator?'

Adding more things to firstboot can hardly be considered ideal or the right way. Even so, for the desktop use case, I think what I am posting makes sense and can be done right away. The "ideal" solutions and other use cases have been used as a impediment for way too long. As a reminder,
