How to set up so that Redhat can shutdown without the root password?
1.I enter: sudo shutdown -h now
It shows:XX is not in the sudoers file
2.So I add XX to /etc/sudoers
then enter:sudo shutdown -h now
It shows:sudo:shutdown:command not found
/*I imagine that when I work in a company , they will not give me the root password , then how can I shut down the operating system? How will the administrator set up？*/

How to edit etc/group and have root privileges?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 3, 2010
I am trying to set up a web server now for the first time (I never used linux before in my life) and trying to make it secure, so I found out I should not let root ssh login, so I wrote "PermitRootLogin no" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
After this, I made a new user called jay and I wanted to give myself all the permissions so that I could still do everything.
I added this line to etc/sudoers as a website instructed me:
jay ALL=(ALL) ALL
and somehow most things worked.
But sometimes, even if I use sudo, I receive a message saying I do not have permission.
So I want to edit etc/group now so that I can stop having these problems but I'm confused. This is what I see:
What do I need to write to make myself like root? Do I just edit

LXer: How to create a full backup of your Android device without root
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 7, 2015
Published at LXer:
Sometimes, a backup of a smartphone or tablet just isn't enough, especially if you have a number of (the same) devices that have to be quickly deployed (or redeployed). For that, you need a bit more power than Titanium Backup or Google Drive. If you want to do full-blown backup of devices, you must turn to the Android Software Developer Kit (SDK). With this powerhouse tool, you can easily create a complete backup of a device with a single command.

How does updatemanager check for updates without root permissions?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 3, 2011
I just realized that Update-manager is able to check for updates without being run as root (although it can't install them, which is expected), isn't this the same as running apt-get update? How come I can't run apt-get update without using sudo (or root) then?

How to drop into root shell prompt without going into recovery?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 1, 2013
I completely hosed my system by installing nvidia-current on 13.10.
I need to remove it so my system can boot properly.
sudo apt-get remove nvidia_current would do nicely.
However, 'm at a los as to how to do this, because the boot freezes on recovery, 6 seconds in, with the message
"nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA" taints kernel."
I need to remove nvidia so my system can boot, but my system can't boot until I remove nvidia.
What Ubuntu sorely needs (if it has, forgive me, I haven't found it) is a failsafe way to boot into shell should the need arise.
