#118 closed defect (wontfix)

Jaunty autoinstaller doesn't set up admin user sudo

Ubuntu users are accustomed to being able to use sudo if their user is an admin. Unfortunately the autoinstaller doesn't set up the admin user like a normal install does.

This little script patches an installed machine, but it would be great if the setup happened by default:

addgroup --gid 114 admin
cat >> /etc/sudoers <<EOF
# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
