sudo visudo and this screen appears:
# # This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root. # # Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of # directly modifying this file. # # See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file. # Defaults env_reset, timestamp_timeout=120 Defaults mail_badpass Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:$ # Host alias specification # User alias specification # Cmnd alias specification # User privilege specification
The first command
Defaults env_reset, timestamp_timeout=120 has been modified with a timeout of 120 minutes between having to enter
sudo password. The normal default is 5 minutes. Although you can change this to a very large number you will still have to enter it once per boot.
