I just installed ubuntu on my netbook and am loving it!!
What I’m now trying to do is set up my root account. I tried to run the following command at a command prompt:
and use the password for the main account i set up during the install process. but that didn't work.
so then i tried
"sudo password root"
in an attempt to change the root password, but i get the following error message:
cp@cp-AOA150:~$ sudo password root sudo: password: command not found
any suggestions on how i can fix this?
i need to start installing tools like apache2 but i can't without being root.... thanks!!
