I did the following:
Added user to sys group. (usermod -g sys liveuser)
Verified user in sys group (I had to log out and log in to see changes in terminal even though I was seeing users and groups in the GUI tool)
Used su mode to edit the sudoers file via visudo (:wq once verified) file to give %sys (user group) various permissions including the DELEGATING command group that includes, among others, the permission to run usr/sbin/visudo (%sys ALL = SOFTWARE, DELEGATING, .... etc)
Verified that file was successfully edited
Exited su mode and tried to run visudo.
No success. Still says liveuser is not privileged to run visudo as root. Scanned several articles and the man file and could not find anything else. What is missing?? Thanks
