root password ubuntu for the first time

When I using red hat or centos, no problemo at all with root login. It is the first time installing Ubuntu,  for the first time you must create user like windows xp. The user is administrator but not superuser like root. To get into root login you must set root password first, using user that created for the first time.

sudo passwd root

Enter new UNIX password:

Retype new UNIX password:

password updated successfully

And then you can login using root with new password



  1. Why do you need to log in as root?

    Just use sudo

    Or if you have a ton of commands to run at once, use sudo -i
