I have a big problem.
I'm using Ubuntu Server Edition 11.04 in my work.
It was everything working fine until I try to export the users from another server.
No, I don´t know the root password (and i have activated and set the root password previously :( ) Anyone knows a way to reset the root password?
So I'm working on LFS and got everything booted up and running...except I don't know what my password for root is. So when I chroot in and do Chapter 6.22, I'm told that I need to do passwd root to change it.
The issues is when I run this command, it doesn't let me put in the password twice.
I installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my 32-bit machine using Ubuntu installer and gave a password when prompted. Later I was able to use that password for logging in, locking-unlocking, authentication etc.(I guess that's because I was the administrator then).
I guess as the root password is default user account password (if i am wrong correct me) in terminal when I type su it asks me password when I enter my password it says Authentication failure why is it happening??
