root user

hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and I want to access the root account but I
cant do so using my password. I didn't specify any password during the
system installation process except the one I use to access my account.
any ideas about how to do so

thanks in advance
Leila

There is no root account by default, I think it's a safety thing, kind
of. Instead you are supposed to use sudo with your user password for
each action (you don't have to enter your password every time though).
There are tons of information about this out there, here's the first
that I found a minute ago:

http://www.debuntu.org/2006/04/24/34-ubuntu-default-root-password-or-the-sudo-way

It's old, but not much happened since then in this case.

Correction: There is one, but it doesn't have a password, so you can't
log in the usual way.

Re: root user

Well, I don't see many talk about enabling the root account on
here...Maybe because it's not supposed to be accessed for security
reasons???

Anyway, from your terminal just run 'sudo passwd root'.  Enter your
password.  Enter what you want the root password to be.  Hit enter and
repeat root password.  Done.  You can not su - to root to save typing
sudo before every command that you wish to run privileged.

Re: root user

root is disabled, and it does not have a passwd. if you really want to use "root", just set a passwd for it.

command:

passwd
(type new root passwd)
(type again)

ubuntu script failure

Halo,

Does anyone else find if they call the multi option from ubuntu sh script it fails?

For instance

mkdir -p /var/log/system_archives/{acpid,auth,btmp,daemon,dpkg,kernel,messages,pm,ppp,scrollkeeper,wpa,wtmp}/$YEAR
upon checking this made a directory called /var/log/system_archives//{acpid,auth,btmp,daemon,dpkg,kernel,messages,pm,ppp,scrollkeeper,wpa,wtmp}/2012

if I run this from my shell manually, it works

this same script I use on all my servers, centos, gentoo, slackware, on those it works as intended,. but on ubuntu  it goes stupid not honouring the {}

Amaork volume control?

I am trying to get Amarok set up to play my music collection. I have it
mostly working the way I want, but I am more used to command line
interfaces that GUI's and sometimes I can't figure out where things are
"hidden" in a GUI. This turns out to be one of the cases. 

Where is the volume control?

Music played by hovering over a MP3 file on the desktop is of a decent
level, but when I play the same file using Amarok, the volume is way to
low. I see that if I hover over the round button on the top left, it shows
me the volume setting. but pushing it just pauses the music. What am I
doing wrong?

Re: root user

Hi, Leila!

You should be able to just "sudo bash" and use your account password.

Probably you start your script with "#!/bin/sh" which is a link to dash 
in Ubuntu and to bash on other systems. As dash doesn't know your wanted 
feature, you should start your script with "#!/bin/bash" instead.
