From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.51 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en)
Description of problem:
I am new to Linux. I installed Fedora FC4 as Desk computer. The install
ran fine and I could use the computer with the Gnome desktop
I ran redhat update and updated the kernal and Extras.
At some point the Root password would no longer be accepted.
Can I reset the Root password? I am unable to get in Admin mode as the
password doesn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to set Time/Date When it asks for password, the correct password
in the correct case doesn't work.
2.Also using SU command in Terminal mode I get the same results.
Actual Results: Password not accepted
Expected Results: Password accepted
I don't mind reloading FC4 if that is the only way, but it looks like
the password was changed.
Bugzilla isn't the best place to ask these types of questions. the Fedora-list
mailing list is more appropriate.
