Hey Ya'll

I'm wanting to know how do I login as root at the login screen as I have punched in the user name as root but then when I type in the password it is incorrect and please don't reply that I shouldn’t use the root account but I need to run some scripts as root that are included in hackpack https://code.google.com/p/lazykali/downloads/list that I downloaded. Or if you can tell me how to run them with out logging in as root as i have also tried the  
Code: [Select]

You shouldn’t use the root account
you shouldn't just because it means you're giving free access to all you have in your pc to those scripts.
Is those trusted? do you know what they do really?

Anyway, just because learning is the fun of Linux, here you go:

http://linux.die.net/man/5/sudoers
http://linux.die.net/man/8/sudo
http://linux.die.net/man/5/passwd
http://linux.die.net/man/1/passwd

with the above links you'll be ready to run your scripts in minutes..

P.S.
you can find those Man pages on your linux box:

Code: [Select]
man -k $WHAT_YOU_WANT  #to find your way :)

why not?!
