Sudo is a program for Unix-like computer operating systems that allows users to run programs with the security privileges of another user (normally the superuser, or root). Its name is a concatenation of the su command (which grants the user a shell of another user, normally the superuser) and "do", or take action.

By default, when you use sudo your current shell environment is not passed through to the session created by it, but RVM already allows for easier access to sudo calls with rvmsudo. However, sudo's defaults are very strict and you might end up getting password prompts on commands that are set to use the sudo NOPASSWD directive.

Changing sudo's strict defaults

There are 3 things needed to mitigate this situation if you encounter it:

After these changes, you should be able to use rvmsudo preserving the same password/no-password directives as "normal" sudo calls.
