question about permissions and sudo
I'm running an unofficial version of Ubuntu/ Crunchbang Linux.
It uses the sudo command. It's driving me a bit nuts trying to get used to sudo. I'm trying to learn how to do bash scripting language and I need some help setting up an environment to learn. I would appreiciate any help with this matter. Preferably, I would like to be able to use a terminal and not have do deal with sudo while I'm in that enviroment. Could I do something like "chroot"? I have a backup partition that I could use. Mount the partition then would I be free of the sudo constraints?
