10.5: Enable the root user
Authored by: tom_b on Oct 29, '07 12:27:14PM

Or "sudo bash" etc.

I occasionally want a shell when I want to run a sequence of commands as root. I've set my sudoers to ask me for my password every time I do sudo (i.e. timeout is zero) which may be more secure for when I leave my box, but can sometimes be a real pain!

But I've never needed to enable root.
