I've been using linux for a couple years now, so I feel kind of stupid :oops: asking, but when are you supposed to set the root password? After the install, I booted into single user mode, but when I tried to change it then, it said it couldn't lock the passwd file. Well, thanks for any help.
May the Schwartz be with you.
i know i was able to do it the first time I logged in, using <b>passwd</b> ...I never got the error you did, sorry I can't be of more help...
