I mentioned my netbook in my last post. Well, today I resolved a big headache, namely not knowing the root password, which meant that I couldn’t update existing software or install many new packages. Thanks to the “How to” section on www.laptopmag.com. I’m now bringing it up to date as much as possible, though it’s a slow process. Not only will I have the ability to write on the netbook, as already reported, I’ll be able to install packages that will make the netbook more useful generally!
The amusing thing is that I had searched high and low for some way to reset the password, and nothing workable presented itself. I gave up after visiting more than 50 sites, many of which simply suggested the same things, or stated that it was impossible! Then, searching for an ebook reader for the netbook, I followed a link and ended up at laptopmag.com! Crazy!
