If my password is for root and me is the same, how do I write my password as root and get permission to enter as root?
Type su in terminal and enter your root password after hitting Enter button.
I wonder if the user is confused because the password does NOT display as you type!!
or if you mean vt (alt,ctrl f1-f6) type root
enter then your password. your pass word will not show anything not even *****
And when you are in, do change the root pasword, it should definitely **not **be the same as that of a normal user.
