Whoopsie-Daisy – No Root? No Love, Baby.

For whoever searched for “can’t login root on YellowDog”, ummm, sorry.
If you forget the root password, you’re pretty much hosed. You hopefully
set yourself up as a normal user and you remember that password. Even
so, you’ll never be able to install another RPM or setup any new
services. Yeah, you’re in a world of trouble. The only way to get the
root password is to set a new one, and the only way to do that is to
start aaa-aaaaaall over by reinstalling.
