Ubuntu Linux – Root Account 17 September 2006

Posted by Maulvi Bakar in : Home,Linux , trackback

I like Ubuntu Linux, always have.  Nice features, fairly comprehensive repositories for softwares.  The only thing that bugs the hell out of me is the non-existance of the root account.  Anytime you want to do something, it’s sudo this, and sudo that…

Well, this is how I did it –

sudo passwd root


I can now either use su to change to root, or even login as root..

quick note:

“sudo passwd”

should work equally well, since you’ll
be running passwd as root with sudo. 🙂

your blog’s an interesting read, keep it up, buddy!
