Re: i forget my fedora login cum root password
- Solution in one line can be mentioned as boot your system into
runlevel 1 or in single mode, set the password and reboot.
Here is a bit of detailed explanation to that:
Step I: Edit grub to enter single mode, also called as runlevel 1
(google for this)
Step II: you will get a shell prompt, use command 'passwd' to set the
root password and it wont ask for your old password.
Step III: Use command 'reboot' to restart your machine.
I'm assuming here that either you haven't set the grub password or you
still remember it.
