Hi, I just installed 'sudo-1.6.7p5.pkg.NIHS.tgz' in Openstep 4.2. I used /usr/local/sbin/visudo to setup the /etc/sudoers file which looks like this:

root ALL = (ALL) ALL
gf ALL = (ALL) ALL

When I attempt 'sudo' from gf user, when I type the password, nothing happens. It's not even moving the cursor as I type the password. ENTER key does nothing. The cursor is just stuck there right next to "Password:". Have to Ctrl-C out of it. It seems to be hanging. Any suggestions are welcome, thank you!!!

[gf@flight /Users/gf]$ sudo whoami

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these two things:

       #1) Respect the privacy of others.
       #2) Think before you type.
