- How to enable root login? 5 answers
I need to use the root account - i.e. log on as root from the start.
I'm not interested in sudo or getting temporary root privileges.
And with the greatest of respect- please no warnings about root or it not being best practice! I've seen a few threads on this and the focus seems to be more about not using it rather than a clear set of instructions to enable the root account. Every thing suggested does not work.
I just need to be presented with a root account when I boot up my machine.
I would therefore be grateful for a concise set of instructions without the string of dire warnings. It would be great to pin such a guide as there seems to be so many versions.
