    Default Torguard app installation: need help

    I'm trying to install Torguard app (VPN) and root access is not possible: Password won't work = su -. Someone can help please on how to install the app?
    Not familiar with opensuse, made a fresh install today. Would like to know about things to do after a fresh install...

    is that a GUI application?
    in that case you need to run
    kdesu </path/to/app> or gnomesu </path/to/app>
    how are you installing it?
    they seam to have an rpm try zypper
    for 64bit
    Code:
    zypper in http://updates.torguard.biz/Software/Linux/torguard-latest-amd64.rpm
    if you are running a 32bit TW
    Code:
    zypper in http://updates.torguard.biz/Software/Linux/torguard-latest-i386.rpm

    I am not sure if your main question is something about installing a product, or not being able to use su - to "become root"?

    The latter would prevent you from doing I_A's suggestions also.

    Please always remember to SHOW what you do and not (only) tell. Thus show your su - and what happens, by copy/paste of prompt, command, output and next prompt in one sweep from your terminal window in between CODE tags in a post here. You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.

    Only so you can inform us exactly about what you did and got without adding to much talking.

    Thanks for replying,
    Indeed, Torguard is a GUI for selecting VPN servers or cities. Here's the problem I deal with constantly:

    Code:
    ss@linux-2o2k:~> zypper in http://updates.torguard.biz/Software/Linux/torguard-latest-amd64.rpm
    Root privileges are required for installing or uninstalling packages.
    ss@linux-2o2k:~> su -
    Password:
    su: Authentication failure
    ss@linux-2o2k:~>
    I also have 2 errors on startup about CPU frequency: I don't find the way to paste a screenshot from the picture folder? URL???

    Then you most probably did not type the correct root password.

    That is what I get when I do the same as you and do not type the correct root password. It waits for a few seconds and then gives the same error message.

    During the fresh install I was ask for one password only. Then, what is the root password?

    Default is the same as the first user. There is an option to set a different password for root in the installer but you have to read the screens to notice it. Check the box then be asked for root

    Also passwords are case sensitive so be sure you are using the correct case for the PW.

    I kept the choice to default and I do believe the only PW is also for root. Is there a way to reset the PW? Are you telling me to redo the installation. It is my first fresh install of Opensuse and Authentification is a heavy task everywhere I go. Even posting on this website requires an identification or question to answer.

    When you did NOT go for a different password for root, the root password is the same as that of the first user. The obvious question is then: can you use that (one and only) password to log in as tha first user? That looks a bit like a silly question because you apparently are loged in, but some people choose for password-less login.

    I don't have a login PW, it is set to automatic login.
