Root password question
Newbie here. I understand user accounts vs. root access and know that you want a different password for each. During the setup for 3 alpha, I don't remember being ask for a root password. I created my user account and set a password for that and wondered why it didn't ask for a root password. Now when I start something like synaptic it will ask for a password and I give it my user password and it works. My understanding is that synaptic should need the root password. So is my user password and my root password the same? If so, how do I change the root to something else?
