"visudo" is completely unusable (/etc/sudoers can only be editted with an external text editor)
Binary package hint: sudo
Hi, I can't use sudo visudo at all!
a) It can't close. not with Esc, not with Alt+x, not with Ctrl+Alt+C...
b) backspace isn't backspace
c) on starting a new line, the first character isn't printed.
d) navigation through the file is messed up.
e) delete is the equivalent of cutting the entire line.
f) it is completely unusable to the point where I was forced to edit it in nano.
Information you ask for below:
Description: Ubuntu hardy (development branch)
*** 1.6.9p10-1ubuntu3 0
I expect the program visudo to act like nano (like what it did in Gutsy).
A complete mess in the user input. Completely unusable. I can't type in a single line with it.
Let alone closing the app once I've given up trying to battle it.
