Ubuntu does not have an active root (user) account. You can elevate to user privilege by prefixing your commands with sudo. If you want to elevate the shell to root privilege, you can do so using sudo -i. Ubuntuforums.org has A LOT of information, including whole wiki pages dedicated to the root policy of Ubuntu.

Hi ganesh,

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. I have merged your two threads since they both have had replies to them.

In the future, if you would like a thread moved to a better location, or renamed perhaps, you can use the REPORT button and ask a moderator to help you.

Best regards!
