Is it possible to change password for root? While installing I opted for using the same password for root. Willing to learn Manjaro, I would like to know what requires root privilege and what requires user privilege. Please guide through steps to change root password. I would like to know doing this in GUI if possible.
Users are advised to reset their password on installed systems by using passwd:
Changing password for user.
(current) UNIX password:
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
When changing the password, the installed Linux system generates a new, random, salt for the password hash and the password is no longer affected by this weakness. Users may also want to reset the root password on the system if it is vulnerable, with sudo passwd.
