setup root on stretch arm64 ayufan
#1
Hi all,

I'm just testing a few linux builds on my new rock64.

The ayufan all have rock64/rock64 as default user but I want to login as root. How can I do this?

Many thanks

I dont think a root password is set. So if you want to login / ssh in as root you will have to set a password for root.
Otherwise you cand just sudo su

Like for any other user
Code:
sudo passwd root

First it will ask you to enter your password since you're using sudo. Then it will ask you to create a new password - that will be the password for root.
