Alternatively you can just google "Single User Mode <Distribution>" or "password reset <distribution>" and you'll likely get the answer. Without physical access it would be extremely hard to reset the password, if possible at all. After all, if people could reset passwords over the internet, that would lead to all sorts of problems!

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I think your post just got posted as I was typing mine...

That comment was directed to palisetty_suman in response to post #15. Everyone in this thread has bent over backwards to help this guy and he blames us for his inability to act on our suggestions and requests for more information.

Ah, understood! No Problem, I generally don't hold things against people anyways. I generally forget straight after in honesty.

Regarding r3sistance, sir if the user's name is not in sudoer's file then its not possible for me to use the sudo command. What's the alternative.
