[SOLVED] In sudo, how to disable "3 incorrect attempts"?

I was able to disable the 3 incorrect attempt block on the login (terminal login, no DM) by uncommenting the deny variable and setting it to 0 in


. But in sudo, i still get the "3 incorrect attempts", however i don't need to wait at all, i can just rerun the command and i'll get the prompt again. Still is annoying, how can i disable?

Btw, this is something new, it came after the new PAM update.

Edit: formatting

See `man sudoers`.  Search for passwd_tries.
