Topic: Doas, a much more efficient and secure alternative to sudo!
Installing is very simple,
in the folder with your zip or tarrred folder of: https://github.com/slicer69/doas/archive/6.2p4.zip
type in bash,
sudo make install (ironic)
and it works well once you do, sudo nano /usr/local/etc/doas.conf and add
permit your_user as wheel
to the config, whatever your username is...
Here is an example how to use it on linux systems,
doas -- pacman -Syu
The -- are needed after doas to make it function.
Also if your a creature of habit, using doas instead of sudo will seem odd at first. I just discovered this gem today, and it is under a libre license. permissive, but libre.
You can also use, this: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/doas
I prefer source usually though over arch.
But anyways if any user wants to make a pkgbuild of this and add it to the hyperbola repo, that would be lovely.
It is easy to install though.
But there is a caveat, everytime you make a command, you must type your password in. Unlike sudo where its once till you close terminal or for three minutes, etc...
By the way, if you use makepkg -i
when installing the aur version of doas,
in the folder you have with the aur doas pkgbuild, I am not certain, but it may be more efficent at getting some of this done.
Take your choice,
The Stable Secure Libre Arch!
