I just finished installing Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 on a new Pavilion p6-2117c desktop.
When installing, it asked me for a user account and password and I gave it. I can login as my user login and password. But when I type su root then enter I’m prompted for the root password.I do not remember that the setup asked me for root password! I tried the user password and it does not work. What Now??? Thanks
