How can I change passwords? [solved]

Recommended Posts

Sorry for asking this dumb stupid question, but a search brought no help.

 

How can I change both administrator and user passwords on my Mandriva 2007 box?

 

(My offspring knows both, and has been up to a lot of mischief!)

 

Cheers,

Helmut

open a terminal and run:

passwd

do this both as your regular user and then su to root and run it again. You probably can also do this in Mandriva Control Center under the User Management section (or whatever it's called) if you prefer a GUI.
