    Default Access Root Components With User Password

    So I'm attempting to get my system to not require the root password while still requiring some form of authentication. My current issue is getting yast2 and its components to ask for the user's password and not the root's.

    Is there a way to have these tools ask for user's password instead of root's?

    Yes, a fully configured sudo - ie, not the default suse config.

    Can you elaborate on that? I've already changed it to ask for users password instead of targets. What else should I add?

    You have to read the manual. Basically, you have to define every program
    with its command line, completely. Example:

    UserName MachineName= (root) /usr/sbin/iptraf
