In my case I execute the NVenvironment and other initialization procedured AFTER I invoke “sudo ksh”.   It bothers the security fanatics who want each command to be executed individually under sudo so they can be tracked but does allow me to get the job done without knowing the root password.

Hello all:

Since suse 9 seems to have changed it's default sudo behavior to not pass variables in that were set by the user (in our case $LD_LIBRARY_PATH), what are other folks doing to get netview commands that require root (aka sudo) to work?

Thanks in advance
