sudo does not read 'make.conf'
I have a strange problem with 'sudo'. In my system (if it is not universal feature) I cannot read '/etc/make.conf'. It says 'Permission denied'. I then tried to read with 'sudo' command. But even for 'sudo' it gives the same error. I then did a 'su'. With root login I could read the file.
So, my question is, is 'sudo' any less privilaged than 'su' inspite of assigning ALL=(ALL) ALL to my 'sudo' account?
I tried googling but no help with my problem. Can any of you simulate it on your gentoo system and confirm please?
