#10289 closed defect (fixed)

sudo timestamp database cannot be created

Reported by: Tim Miller Dyck <tim@…> Owned by: nico
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC5
Keywords: sudo Cc:


Tested with OpenWrt 10.03.1-RC5, r27608. sudo is 1.7.4p4-1

Each time sudo is run, it prints the following error message:

sudo: can't mkdir /var/db/sudo: No such file or directory

/var/db does not exist by default. As a result, sudo cannot create its timestamp database in /var/db/sudo. As a result, sudo asks for authentication every time it is run instead of allowing a period of authenticated access.

If I manually create /var/db, the database is created and there is no error message as above.

Maybe /var/db needs to be created each time at boot, as this is a tmpfs?
