Dear All,

How to config the sudo, then allow user A to install tarball packages with FC8 System ?




You use the 'visudo' command to edit the /etc/sudoers files.
Don't edit that file directly.

see this /etc/sudoers sample
http://www.gratisoft.us/sudo/sample.sudoers

'rpm' is just another command you add to the allowed commands.
so for example a the CLI: "sudo rpm -Uvh someRpm.rpm',

Hello Aldo,

Sorry, my means is tarball packages ( NOT rpm packages )...


----
users don't need superuser privileges to use tar at all UNLESS they are
trying to 'untar' into spaces where only superuser can write, in which
case, security is out the window.

Craig


You're correct. How did I mix rpm and tar? My coffee was not strong
enough this morning.. ;-)

Hello,

Sorry, My means is how to running the command line of "./configure",
"make" and "make install" ?
How to config sudo or / and linux system for it ?

----
users can (and should) run configure, make as users, not as super users.
'make install' only needs super user privileges if the intended install
is to go into /usr/local but users can have 'bin' or 'sbin' directories
in their own space to run compiled programs that are available only to
that specific user and not to all users.

Did I mention that you are going to have nightmares if you actually give
users super user privileges enough times yet?

Hello,

When I tried to install the tarball packages as the following :

[svradmin svr1 proftpd-1.3.0a]$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/proftpd

./configure: line 88: conf4161.sh: Permission denied
./configure: line 89: conf4161.sh: Permission denied
chmod: cannot access `conf4161.sh': No such file or directory
./configure: line 201: conf4161.file: Permission denied
./configure: line 1266: config.log: Permission denied
[svradmin svr1 proftpd-1.3.0a]$

So, how to fix the problem ( Permission denied ) ?

Any solution for it ?
----
sure, make sure the same user/group that 'untarred' the tarball and owns
the files/folders is the one trying to run 'configure'

Craig
The directory "/usr/local/" is owned by root. The OP needs to have
root's permissions. He can use either sudo or su get get root's
permissions or use a target directory to which he has read and write
access.
----
does that matter though if all you are running is ./configure ?  I never
had a problem with that.

Craig

I believe this depends on what .configure does to determine what is needed to set up the configuration. If the tests require creation of files etc. then you might encounter issues like this.
