Ubuntu tip

January 6, 2006

As the root account is disabled by default on Ubuntu, you must use sudo to perform admin tasks. It can be a bit irritating to have to constantly append sudo, so you can use this to allowing switching to root via su:

sudo passwd

You will be prompted to a new UNIX password, which will now allow you to use su.
