If you're already familiar with NetBSD, this information may not be particulary new or useful to you. It's not particularly Atari-specific. I do however use this for my own reference when I install NetBSD/atari.

  1. Make sure to run through the pkgsrc configuration described in the packages section.
  2. su to root.
  3. cd /usr/pkgsrc/security/sudo
  4. make install
  5. visudo
  6. Uncomment the line that allows members of the group wheel to execute any command (with their password)
    • %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
  7. Save and exit vi.
  8. Exit out of root.

Now as a user in group wheel you can run any command as root (eg: "sudo make install") after typing your password when prompted.
