    The fastest way is by using 'passwd' in a terminal (as root, of course). It works self-explanatory.

    Thanks, I knew this command from another linux distro, but didn't know it was the same in openSUSE.

    kind regards, Frank

    Welcome to the forums. It may be worth pointing out that "Linux" (to be
    overly pedantic) is a kernel. With that in mind distributions (OpenSUSE,
    Ubuntu, Fedora, Slackware, Gentoo) are made out of the same nuts and bolts
    but rearranged in various ways to cater to a certain need or demographic.
    A lot of the command line stuff will be identical because it is all based
    on commands from the old Unix systems. Why am I telling you all of this?
    Expect a LOT of similarities. Tips/Tricks learned with one distro will
    often carry over to another. There are big exceptions, of course,
    depending on the distribution and the software installed. If you use
    Gnome, don't expect KDE commands to work, and vice versa. If you're from
    Ubuntu, don't expect the 'apt' commands to work in SUSE, though they will
    work in Debian (Ubuntu is based on Debian). If you're using
    Fedora/OpenSUSE/SLE/etc. the 'rpm' commands will work for package
    management, though only SUSE has Yast. Anyway, there ya go. Welcome to
    the forums.

    Good luck.
