Ubuntu use root without sudo
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 12, 2009
I have been using Fedora and just got an opportunity to use Ubuntu.
For Fedora, I can just sudo, then can continue working as root without re-sudo.
However, for Ubutuntu, I have to use sudo every time I want to perform task as the root. If the task is short, it will not ask for the password. It becomes problem when I wrote scripts that each task take a long time to complete. The second task will not continue unless I enter the root password again. Is there a way to skip entering the root password?
Here is example of my script:
How to enable root login on 6.06 dapper?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 8, 2007
Somewhere there's a configuration file that enables you to login as root.
I know it because approximately one year ago I installed Kubuntu 6.06 for the first time, and I do remember that I once edited a file somewhere with this line: enable root login true/false.
Now I thought to find it in the System Administration section of the System Settings, in the login manager window.
But it's not there.
If you know an answer to this little problem, please let me know.

Here are the instructions verbatim:
When you want to log on to a linux machine and you dont know any password then here is a way to do it
At the login prompt just reboot the system
When a blue sort of screen comes
in which there is the name of your operating system written
This is called the grub screen
just press e
you will get a new list
go second item of the list and just press e
now some text will be displayed
remove all the rubbish written in front of / and just type single there and then press the escape key
and then press b
then another prompt will apear
type passwd there
it will ask for new password
now just give and after that type exit at the terminal
you are done
I'm migrating to ubuntu and I'm certain there are measures one may take to eliminate this issue although I wonder if ubuntu is vulnerable to this method 'out of the box'.

I have set root passwd using terminal and when try to login it says root logins are not allowed. The main thing why i need to login as root is to edit the bootcfg file (i.e) grub.cfg file. Everytime when i update the generic header appends to the top of the list and the older one doesnt get deleted automatically and also i want to order my windows OS during boot. And also please tell me how to edit that grub.cfg in terminal. Thanks in advance.
[SOLVED] How to make Ubuntu's root account like Debian's?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 12, 2012
Does anyone know how to make Ubuntu's root account like Debian's? The main reason I don't like to use Ubuntu is because of the way they set up the sudo account. I know all the reasons why it's supposed to be more secure. My system is the main system in my house, all my family use it, so for my home use logging in to just one session is the easiest way to go. But if I log into Ubuntu or allow my family to log in to the main account they have the root/sudo passwd.
I know how to set up a root account passwd root but that does not set up a root account as I'm used to.
When I set up a Debian system the root account is seperate, I log in as a user and if I need to admin the system I su in a terminal and perform the task I need and log out. Setting up a root account in Ubuntu does not work the same way. In Ubuntu when the root account is setup it is still tide into the first user on the system. In Ubuntu any gui app, that needs root to access still wants the sudo passwd which is the same
