I recently updated to macOS Sierra 10.12.4 Beta (16E144f) and it might be what is causing
sudo to delay up to 10 minutes as it's the most recent change I recall since this problem occurred. I have never had to wait so long for a basic program and something is clearly wrong. The command eventually succeeds, but after waiting way too long.
I've been using this question as a reference. So far, I've tried adding my hostname to the end of the
127.0.0.1 line in
/etc/hosts as well as. I checked
/etc/resolv.conf and I did have some extra entries from when I was on a network that needed manual DNS entries, but I removed them and there has been no difference. I used the
networksetup -setdnsservers command to restore the original values. Internet still works fine but still a very slow
I tried the
logger 'test' command thinking it would write to
/var/log/system.log, but it looks like it totally deleted that file although it was soon made anew.
I was hoping to use the
strace command to see what was happening while
sudo ran but that command is not available on OS X. Has anyone ran into this problem on this operating system before?
/var/log/system.log has the following messages that may be relevant. Again the command does eventually succeed as normal:

Any help would be appreciated.
