Forgotten sudo (su) and user password for app install etc...
After a long time of about 5 months without my PC and Win7 which I havent had the time to really check out whats wrong with / I am back on a slow laptop with 256 of RAM, PIIIM on 1113MHz which I had for years, and tried out a few lighweight distros after getting rid of Win XP.
Now, I am running on anti x which I found to be a great OS, speedwise as it could be on such a slow machine.
My problem though is I forgot my root pass and my user pass which seem to be different from each other because I remember I could use terminal to update but not the antix Control Center which keeps asking me for a different pass. Any help in getting the both back so I wouldn't have to re-install and before doing a re-install doing a backup?
It's a pain in the ass, since I basically use(d) this laptop for writing, and there are files of plenty.
Ty in advance.
Cheers and good luck!
