SOLVED: No Root pass word set

Postby droth49 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 3:21 pm

Three to four months ago I set up Amahi 11 running Fedora 27, At that time I was told not to set up a root pass word the my main user pass word would work. I now need to make some changes to the system that require root access. When I type su - and enter my password access fails. What gives? What have I missed?

Code: Select all

sudo su -
BTW you can execute root commands without changing to root user. Just preceded commands with sudo.

Marking as resolved.
