Subject [GitHub] incubator-brooklyn pull request: SoftwareProcess.dontRequireTtyFor...
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2015 20:58:52 GMT
Github user aledsage commented on the pull request:
    @ahgittin problems were reported when using `BashCommands.dontRequireTtyForSudo()` on
a RHEL environment - the sed command had left `/etc/sudoers` wrong, so it was then impossible
for anyone to sudo - i.e. we'd entirely broken the VM.
    Unfortunately I'm not sure what the original `/etc/sudoers` file looked like, such that
our `sed` command would break it.
    But it highlighted that we were following *very* bad practices by modifying the file directly;
switching to `visudo` is definitely the right thing to do.
