o.k. how can one change the root password?
Having a blast with Linux as a newbie. But I have one mystery in progress.
I have Ubuntu 8.10 on a second partition and now in Windows I have a virtual install of AndLinux. (the AndLinux uses Ubunto 7.10)
In both installs, I was never asked to set the root password. I just setup my main ueer id.
I've had no problem using "sudo" to do root operations, but if I try and use "su", I get no where as I don't know the root password.
Anyone have an answer? (I certainly hope it's not a "start at the beginning and install your Linux again, as I have a ton of goodies working already).
Thank you for the help guys!
