Root wachtwoord kwijt?

Voer de volgende stappen uit om een nieuw root wachtwoord in te stellen

  1. Hold the Shift key at boot to display the Grub boot menu.
  2. Select the top Grub entry, it will be similar to:
    Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-22-generic-pae
  3. Hit e to edit the the Grub entry.
  4. Find the line that looks like this:
    linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-22-generic-pae
    root=UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
    ro vga=794 quiet splash
  5. Change the line to:
    linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-22-generic-pae
    root=UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx rw init=/bin/bash
  6. Hit crtl+x to boot

Your machine will now do a one time boot into single user mode. Once you reboot the changes you just made to Grub will be reverted.
