download_and_compile.sh script wont accept sudo password

Postby cebif » Sat Feb 25, 2012 5:18 am

I am trying to use the download_and_compile.sh script in debian 6.04 64bit. I had the whole of flightgear download and compiled before in ubuntu 10.04 and copied the whole flightgear folder over to my user folder in debian. I made sure the folder and contents had the correct permissions with the command "sudo chown -R greg.greg flightgear". Also made sure that the script can be started as an executable. Inside the script it searches for libboost1.46-dev. The latest version available for debian 6.04 is 1.42. I did a search and replace in the script with gedit to replace libboost1.46-dev with libboost1.42-dev. In the terminal I was using command to update to latest stable version like this:
sh download_and_compile.sh -s ALL -j 2
The -j 2 because I want to compile using two CPU cores.. When It asks for my password, I type my super user password but every-time it says incorrect. It is definitely correct because I can use the same in apt-get or synaptic.
Does anyone know what the problem is. How can it be fixed.

Hey cebif

Try the password for your own account. Depending how sudo has been configured, it'll run either using the root password or the executing user's.

I was logged into the account with super user privilege. That was the password but does not work.

This is what I see in terminal:
Code: Select all
Asking root password to perform an apt-get update
Password:
su: Authentication failure

Last night I had the same issue. The mistake I made was using download_and_complie.sh script after logging in as "root". I logged out of root (you may use a separate terminal session) and then it started working. Hope this helps
