    Red face 3x Root accounts? & Upgrade & help with installing Adobe Flash Player


    Hello,
    I am a litte bit confused...
    I see in my linux 3x Root accounts(Terminal>>Users>>Result: Root Root Root)
    so is this normal or not?
    Im using Ubuntu/BackTrack 5R3
    i just reinstalled the hole system because i messed up the system (there was no important data)

    And uhm..
    About the Upgrade...
    When i do the distribution Upgrade it will sucfully install it but then after its done, i cant access the root account.
    how do i fix it?

    And at last, about the Adobe Flash Player...
    how the heck do i install this for firefox? =D
    What i did to install;
    Unpacked the files (tar.gz)
    Then i putted the .so File what came out in the packed file to;
    /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
    Then i putted the usr directory to /usr/ and thats it..
    Didnt work.. what im doing wrong?

    Im a litte bit new to this so a details would be fine
    Thanks!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sorry for the late reply. I thought I'd clean up some old unanswered posts. In any case, the users command only gives a list of who is "logged on" to the system. There are apparently 3 root processes that had to run as a login and not a daemon process. Not a problem, actually, or shouldn't be.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
