Yeah, that's the problem.

Nope, this won't work either, reason: as written redirection is
accomplished by the shell, i.e. without root permission.
The above command is too long for an example, try these:
% sudo rm sample # make sure file doesn't exist
rm: cannot remove `sample': No such file or directory
% sudo touch sample # create file owned by root
% sudo echo "will fail" >>sample
zsh: permission denied: sample
% sudo echo "will not work either >>sample"
will not work either >>sample
% sudo sh -c "echo \"will work\" >>sample"
% cat sample
Siggy (wondering why this thread is that long)
