I Love Ubuntu

If you have just configured the Ubuntu and you want to enable root user, then following is the procedure:


faaiz@ubuntu:~$ sudo passwd root
Enter new UNIX password:    //---here you enter the desired password
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
faaiz@ubuntu:~$ su
Password:                  //---enter the password that you set earlier for root
faaiz@ubuntu:/home/faaiz#    //---here you are root privilege mode
