I just installed Mandriva 2010 on one of my maschines since I'm having a course in Linux in school later this month.
The installation works just fine and not a single problem during setup.
But when I open up the console and type "sudo -i" and then my password I get the error:
"andreas is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported"
I found on antother forum a way that has worked for some users.
Press Ctrl + Alt + F1
Log in as root (Here my password works)
Add the following under root: YourUsernameHere ALL=(ALL) SETENV: ALL
Save and exit
But I still have the same problem.
My password is: Proxy
(Since this is a standalone computer and the password is only used here I can write it out)
Any help on how to fix this problem is greatly appriciated!
I've been using Ubuntu before but converted to Windows again. So I'm not a complete newbie on Linux, but far from any good aswell!
