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.How to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"
