I'm an experienced developer, but I'm new to Linux.
When I installed gNewSense today, it asked me to set up a
username/password, but I don't recall it asking me to set up a
password for root. Now when I try to do 'su' in a terminal window, it asks me
for a password. No password I try works. I've tried the password for the login I
set up, I've tried 'password' and 'Password' and I tried leaving it blank.
I searched the mailing list archives and Google,
but couldn't find any info. Thanks very much for any pointers.
