[Bug 181399] Re: Tramp cannot access files via sudo
Emacs-184.108.40.206 installed from "http://emacs.naquadah.org/" on Debian.
During sudoing with tramp "/sudo::" it asks for a password with a prompt like:
"Password for /sudo:root@mynetworkhostname:"
So tramp is trying to ssh to remote host with name "mynetworkhostname"
as this is not localhost. This operation fails as I don't have sshd
My fix is to set "tramp-default-host" to localhost:
(setq tramp-default-host "localhost")
So it works now.
