stop NOTICE : All NRAO Public Wiki users MUST Change or reset their passwords (click here to change or click here to reset) by TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 2014.
Remember to use your LoginName (e.g., JohnPublic), not your email address.
For OSX 10.4 (Tiger), you can just log in as an administrative user and run:
    bash$ passwd root
For OSX 10.3 (Panther) , you need to run:
    bash$ sudo passwd root
However, unless you really do a lot of work as root, e.g. building packages etc., you are probably better off just using sudo when you really need to do something as root from the commandl line.
