LXF 74 Coverdisc (CD) with UBUNTU - root password please

Postby mdweaversr » Thu Dec 22, 2005 3:38 am

:D Newbie to the forums. Love the Mag and the CD's and DVD's.

OK... I thought I could read... I was unable to find the root password in LXF74 for the UBUNTU distribution for 5.10 on the CD. So... :? am unable to configure or manage the box. Could one of you guys/gals help?

Keep up the good work, and if possible change my distro to DVD.

VR,

mdw ;-)

Ah good work. I found the little trick. Using the SUDO interface I changed the password, And Oila... I'm in.

Thanks again.
