It really ins't recommended to get rid of the password prompt when using 'sudo'. It becomes a giant security risk then. You can always drop to root when performing admin type things... but you do need to make sure you pay attention to what you are doing while under root since you can mess up your system.

Right passwords and keeping users separate from administration are a good thing, remember windows has thousands of viruses and can be hacked quite easily as the user and the admin are the same on windows.

Password prompts I say are the best thing about linux especially when it comes to administration privileges.

I agree. I was quite annoyed in my earlier days of Linux with having to type in the password... but the more you learn, and the more you use Linux, you get used to it and its not that big a deal anymore.

And linux isnt the only OS that can do this.

OSX can do it too, as its also UNIX like and uses sudo as its backend

IMO Forget about this RAMIA.  This is your best security, don't change it.  If your pass is too long or hard to remember then change it.

If you are really want to change it... just search google, there are plenty of forums and sites that will tell you how to do it. Most people here are in agreement though, that it is a security risk and its best left alone.

Indeed, you would be much safer if you lit yourself on fire and jumped into a large oil tank sitting next to propane tanks located near several sticks of dynamite and a nuclear reactor.

Damn LOL. That got violent quick.

"Left alone" as in... stop trying to mess around with this topic. Like everyone has said a couple times already, its not a good idea to get rid of the admin password prompt. But.. it is your PC do what you want. You just won't get help from this forum on the subject, you'll have to do the research yourself.
