14.4. Changing Passwords

How do I change my root or user password?

The process for changing the password of root is the same as that for changing the password for a user. First, log in to the appropriate account. Open a shell prompt and enter the command passwd. The passwd command asks for the new password, which you will have to enter twice. The next time you log in, use the new password.
