Change root password in Linpus

February 11, 2009 3 comments

Linpus asks you to input the root password on the first boot. in order to change this password open up a terminal (Alt-F2 and enter xterm into the dialog that appears) then run “sudo su” to change to root user and use the command “passwd” to change your password.

A note to people who dont use linux that often, after you run the command to change the password it will ask you to input the password twice, while you type the password nothing will change in the console, no dots or words appear as you type. This is standard procedure, just input your password normally.
