Here's my current situation. I have installed Backtrack 5 R1 (which is essentially Ubuntu 10.04 with lots of preloaded packages) onto a 16 GB flash drive, and everything words fine until I change the root password. I have the Gnome 64-bit edition.
The default root/toor combination works, and I'm able to load the desktop using startx.
Whenever I try to change settings for the Admin account or download any files/programs it asks for a password. I do not know/remember this password. I've tried resetting it and making a new account using ROOT, but it wont let me. when I try to change my password, this comes up. "Authentication token manipulation error". I would greatly appreciate some help in this matter.
I just installed Lubuntu as a user. It didn't ask me
anything during the install about root, or what root
password I would like. So now, when I need root to
change /etc/fstab or /etc/rc.local, I can't. When I
try to set up root admin in Users Accounts, it says
there already is a root. Nobody said nothing to ME
about setting up a root account.
