FEDORA-2016-b44c593f3f created by ndim 5 years ago for Fedora 22
unpushed

beep-1.3-15.fc* adds documentation and helping files for non-root users to run beep successfully. This includes:

  • Example sudoers configuration file at /etc/sudoers.d/beep which the system admin must adapt for their local system's needs.

  • Updated documentation in /usr/share/doc/beep/README.fedora which explains the sudo based setup.

  • Shell aliases for beep to allow non-root users to run beep from the shell via sudo -n, for both sh and csh type shells.

If you do not set up sudoers, the behaviour of beep does not change: As root, running beep beeps. As non-root user, running beep produces an error message. The error message is just a different one now, produced by sudo.

This update has been submitted for testing by ndim.
