One of annoyance I found on openSUSE 11 is that Yast is no longer sudo enabled. The privilege elevation sudo line “[username] ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL” works with everything else except for Yast.

In versions prior to openSUSE 11 sudo worked fine with Yast. Apparently in openSUSE 11 Yast sudo was switched to su.

Here’s how you’d get Yast to start working with sudo again.
