How to boot Knoppix as Root
Please advise how to start Knoppix as Root instead of User. Because;
avoidng "su" to mount HD
Applications can't read files in mounted partitions, unless they were started as Root (i.e. after su).
# mount /dev/xyz /mnt/xyz
# mount -o remount,rw /mnt/xyz
Did not solve the problem.
B.R. and Happy New Year.
If you right-click on the hard drive icon on the Knoppix desktop, you will see an option for "Actions", select that and choose the option to change read/write mode.
To access root in a terminal, just open a terminal and type "su" and don't enter a password.Pick up a starving dog, prosper him, and he won't bite you.
This is the main difference between men and dogs.
Use CODE tags when posting output of commands. Thank you.
There should also be a Root Console in knoppix.
