Vertica cannot find Sudo

During installation I receive the following error when deploying the rpm: sudo rpm -Uvh vertica-7.0.0-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm [sudo] password for wwest: error: Failed dependencies: sudo is needed by vertica-7.0.0-0.x86_64 This would suggest that Vertica cannot find sudo. However when I issue the which command I receive this: $ which sudo /usr/bin/sudo So clearly the OS knows where it is. The OS is: uname -or 2.6.32-279.22.1.el6.x86_64 GNU/Linux How do I get the install to see sudo? Thanks, Bill West


  • I am not sure what the problem with sudo is, but if you have root access, you can install without sudo. Apologies if I am stating the obvious here, just trying to help.
  • Out of curiosity, do you have the "sudo" package installed?

    "rpm -qa | grep sudo"

    (The binary alone is not sufficient.  RHEL's supported 'sudo' is distributed as a package.)
