sudo allows privilege escalation for non root users to perform restricted actions while in a locked down user environment.
# emerge sudo
The sudo configuration file is located @
$su -c 'nano /etc/sudoers'
Remove the # in the line....
%wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
Add your user to the wheel group to enable sudo:
$ su -c 'gpasswd -a $USER wheel'
Either log out, and in again or restart:
$ su -c 'shutdown -r now'
Users that want bash completion with sudo need to run this once.
$ echo "complete -cf sudo" >> $HOME/.bashrc
