    Recover root passwd on OPEN SUSE 10.x

    Hi,

    On one of our LINUX workstation the root password is lost. We need to recover the root password in order to login as root. If anyone has experienced, this situation, could you please send me the procedure to break the root password or gain root access on the system.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Hi,

    I went to google and searched for opensuse reset root password, and this came as the first result:

    HTH
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
