Root password stopped working in Linux in Thailand Posted February 27 Very, very useful. As I don't see my friend that often, it might be awhile before I can check all this out on his computer. Currently, his Linux Mint is running smoothly, and I managed to get all the programs he needs on it installed and settings made during setup. Just can't update anything because of the password issue. As long as he doesn't need Adobe Flash updated on his Firefox. That just stops working when it needs an update. Will keep you informed. Thank you very much. It's rare to find a real Linux expert.
