Hi. I need to change the admin password that was set on the initial install.
Thank you. I am totally new. I followed the interceptor to this new world.
Ok, you are asking about the root password. Like most modern Linux distributions, there is no root password set by default, but you can login as admin, and then become root with `sudo su`.
I installed to small SATA Drive.
I just reinstalled prior to reading your response.
I set the password during the install.
The password is not accepted as authentication when I try to run as SU
If you haven't forgotten your password, and just want to change it, you only need to type `passwd` from the terminal.
The installer prompts you for a password for admin. If you have forgotten the password, select "Bash" from the boot menu. Then you can change the admin password as follows (mmcblk0p2 below assumes you installed to eMMC).
mount /dev/mmcblk0p2 /mnt
