Probably nothing to do with your original problem, but you do know that
you can allow sudo to execute certain commands without a password?
Passwords in shell scripts isn't exactly ideal...
Just out of curiosity: What is the "echo * |" supposed to do? From my
point of view the shell will expand "*" to the list of files and
directories in PWD, so "echo *" acts like a simple ls in this context.
This list is piped to sudo. But what does sudo do with these?
sorry, I didn't want to show my passwords, so I replaced it with an
astrix. the password of course is being read from the pipe by sudo
because of the -S option.
E.g. my sudoers has:
Cmnd_Alias HEALTHD = /usr/local/sbin/healthd
%wheel ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: SMART_STATUS, HEALTHD, MBMON
So anyone in group wheel (me :-)) can excecute any of the named commands
without any password. You can also force the flags that will be passed
- the sudoers man page has more details.
