I have a NOPASSWD line in /etc/sudoers (edited with
gatoatigrado ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /bin/set-slow-cpufreq
However, the output is,
gatoatigrado@coral:~> sudo -n /bin/set-slow-cpufreq sudo: sorry, a password is required to run sudo
This kind of command works on an OpenSuSE machine, but not on Ubuntu 11.10. What am I doing wrong?
Note: I cannot find any relevant system log messages, e.g. via
tail -f /var/log/syslog.
Here is /etc/sudoers.

You should put that line after the line with the rule for the
sudogroup, because, as the
sudoersman page states:
