    To set the root password requires the use of sudo, which in this case has been broken. The best bet for the OP is to look into the link in WorMzy's post or post back the output for bodhi.zazen.

    Use of the root account is not supported here (Canonical have it locked as default). Posting instructions for unlocking it is against forum policy (lucky you didn't do that ). Hence the response to your post suggesting the use of the root account and su (which normally won't work in Ubuntu for root). Hope this helps explain the reaction/response earlier.
