            timeout error message when running sudo visudo
            Asked 2021-Jun-22 at 18:09

            I was trying to install yabai on my Big Sur mac, and ran into an issue when trying to do visudo. After some playing around, I found that I was running into issues even with just sudo visudo (i.e., the problem isn't with yabai):

            It looks like visudo is trying to run Sublime Text despite your use of an EDITOR environment variable. I suspect that this is because you have it set in the SUDO_EDITOR or VISUAL environment variables, both of which take precedence over EDITOR if they're set. Try sudo SUDO_EDITOR="vim" visudo or sudo SUDO_EDITOR="nano" visudo instead.

            If that isn't it, the other possibility is that in your sudoers file, env_editor is disabled and so editor is forcing the use of Sublime Text.

            SL* symbols are defined in SkyLight.framework located in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks. In your Xcode project you can manually add /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks to either SYSTEM_FRAMEWORK_SEARCH_PATHS or FRAMEWORK_SEARCH_PATHS and -framework SkyLight to OTHER_LDFLAGS.
