when using the awesome **rmate** to remote-edit some files I ran into
the problem that I had to use sudo for writing into a file.
ubuntu at ubuntu:/etc/apache2$ rmate httpd.conf
File httpd.conf is not writable! Use -f/--force to open anyway.
ubuntu at ubuntu:/etc/apache2$ sudo rmate httpd.conf
ubuntu at ubuntu:/etc/apache2$ /usr/local/bin/rmate:157:in
`initialize': Connection refused - connect(2) (Errno::ECONNREFUSED)
from /usr/local/bin/rmate:157:in `new'
from /usr/local/bin/rmate:157:in `connect_and_handle_cmds'
from /usr/local/bin/rmate:207:in `block in <main>'
from /usr/local/bin/rmate:206:in `fork'
from /usr/local/bin/rmate:206:in `<main>'
The documentation mentions a sudo-replacement *rvmsudo* which keeps the
environment. But this seems not to part of the standard repositories,
which makes it nearly impossible to install it on a clients machine.
Kind regards, Ingo
