• Strange Yaourt problem:


    I’ve noticed on a few occasions that when I’m going to grab something from the AUR via Yaourt it freezes after asking for my sudo password. I’ll have to see if it does it also with pacaur.

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the delay. Are you still experiencing this issue?

    Best Regards,

  • Oh yes, I just experienced it again.

  • Are you able to use sudo directly? Like…[command:rlb9oxvh]sudo touch /test && sudo rm /test[/command:rlb9oxvh]Post the contents of /etc/sudoers here.

    Best Regards,

  • I was able to do that command as the issue only pops up every now and then.

  • Hmm…everything looks okay. Does it happen usually after your system has been up for an extended period without reboot?

    Best Regards,

  • Generally I shutdown every night, but I think this is an aur related issue. I’ll try other aur installers and see how it goes.
