Unable to persistently stay in the "wheel" group

After a reboot, my users groups were completely reset, and when i try adding myself back to all the groups i need, I am unable to persistently stay in the wheel group, but all other groups are fine. Please help…

Try creating a new user and see if it happens with that user.

new user seems to stay in wheel…
If it helps trying to trace the issue, ive just installed KVM/libvirt stuff and have been setting that stuff up

Please post the terminal output as text and not screenshot so copy and quoting would be possible.

From what I see, you only use the -G option in:

# usermod -G wheel roberth

You would need the -a (–append) option as well:

-a, --append append the user to the supplemental GROUPS


# usermod -a -G wheel roberth

Logout and log back in.


thanks… i just thought -G appended by default, my fault… Now to figure out why my sound devices no longer exist…
