    Can sudo be installed on OpenVix?

    Is it possible to install sudo on OpenVix?

    root@zgemmah7:~# opkg install sudo
    Couldn't find anything to satisfy 'sudo'.
    Unknown package 'sudo'.
    * opkg_solver_install: Cannot install package sudo.
    I don't like having to ssh into the box with root. I'd prefer to create another user and use sudo whenever I need root permissions.

    It's not built.

    You're unlikely to be doing anything there that doesn't need root permissions (given that the recording are all done by root).

    Why do you want sudo, you already have root access.

    I think OP is preferring least-privilege approach and use sudo where necessary.

    However, going by @Birdman then root access is very likely needed for things so OP would have to sudo all the time.
