[mythtv-users] exit and shutdown from mythtv

so, i've worked on it a little more. found a couple issues.
1) need to have /sbin/halt in the sudoers file:
"live ALL=NOPASSWD:/sbin/shutdown, /sbin/halt, /sbin/reboot"
2) need to have /sbin in my user path. did this by adding
"PATH=$PATH:/sbin" to the .bashrc file in my mythtv user's directory.
then the sudo xxxx commands worked. unfortunately, that's not how mythtv
must call for shutdown. i get "halt: must be superuser".
so i typed "chmod +s /sbin/halt". now it works. i can exit from the menu
button and my frontend will shutdown. the sudo file stuff doesn't mean
anything now, and all users can now halt the system. is there a better way
to do this? thanks.
the 'exit and shutdown' button used to work for me. isn't now though. i've
noticed that the user i am logging in with does not have priveleges to run
shutdown. so, i editted the sudoers file. didn't seem to change anything
though. here's my file, username live:
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
# Host alias specification
# User alias specification
# Cmnd alias specification
Cmnd_Alias SHUTDOWN = /sbin/shutdown
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
live ALL = NOPASSWD: SHUTDOWN
but, when i choose the 'exit and shutdown' button, i get a command not
found. specifically, 'sh: line 1: halt: command not found'. any ideas?
