How to fix the sudo behaviour under Suse Linux

Man, this is one of the most f*cked-up configuration I have ever seen.

Here is the deal, user john is trying to sudo some dumb command:

john@trinity:~> sudo dumb_command
root's password:

WTF?? Why is Suse Linux asking me for the root password WHEN I AM USING SUDO???!!!

Gosh, this is so dumb. Easy to solve, though, as root:

root@trinity:~# visudo

Then comment out the two following lines in /etc/sudoers:

## In the default (unconfigured) configuration, sudo asks for the root password.
## This allows use of an ordinary user account for administration of a freshly
## installed system. When configuring sudo, delete the two
## following lines:
# Defaults targetpw   # ask for the password of the target user i.e. root                       <--- First line
# ALL   ALL=(ALL) ALL   # WARNING! Only use this together with 'Defaults targetpw'!             <--- Second line

And test again:

john@trinity:~> sudo dumb_command
john's password:

Done! That was not too painful, but it still qualifies as one of the ABSOLUTE DUMBEST CONFIGURATION ever!

Hope this one helped you...
