Hi guys,
Thanks

What i am trying to achieve is; when executing

# sudo make install
Password:*********

this password entered is root password.

it gives is error

Sorry, try again.

but when i do a su - and then gave the same root password. I am able to
switch account to user.

-------

Am am trying to add my account to sudoers file. It should be easy i think.
