Question sudo insults

Hey all -

I'm running into an issue on my fedora installations getting sudo insults to work. I'm fairly new to the distro, but in other distros, I just had to add insults to the Defaults line within visudo. Then I could sudo -K to reset my sudo session and it worked.

Since I installed sudo from yum, I suppose it's possible that insult support is not built into the rpm. Can you guys shed some light on how to get my machine to insult me when I make mistakes??

I'm sure others got it working and I was hoping not to have to manually compile sudo with insults support as I don't want to break yum for updates/upgrades. If that's the only option, I'm more than happy to go that route, just would like it as a last resort.

Thanks peeps.
