Hi guys,
I am installing a software as a name of rasdaman. in the first step I should do this:
1) Log in to the target system as user rasdaman.

I cannot understand what does it means. would you please help. if it needs to create rasdaman user how can I do that?

Best Regards,
Shirin

It means you need to log in with the user name of rasdaman...just what it says. If you honestly can't log into the system and don't understand that first step, are you sure you need to be the one doing system maintenance and installing software?? I don't mean this to be nasty, but if you have co-workers, this may be a job for them, or at least ask them for guidance. If this is part of your school work, then you need to ask your teacher for guidance.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
Actually, I have created a user account by "user add" command and then defined password by "passwd" command. My problem here is how to have an access to it and have it like the other user account such as root. I want to have it as the title of my terminal exactly when we are in the root.

Best regards,
Shirin

No idea what you're saying here. If you have created the account, then use it...what's the problem? You said you created it and set a password...so, use that ID as the user name, and put in whatever password you gave it.

What do you mean "have it as the title of my terminal"???? What terminal? Running where? What terminal emulator? What kind of client???

Read the man page on the "su" command. Try "su - <username>" as root. Also, logging in as root is a VERY BAD IDEA, and shouldn't be done. root access is for special use only, not for just logging in.
