Enabling the root account

IconsPage/IconWarning3.png

Enabling the Root account is rarely necessary. Almost everything you need to do as administrator of an Ubuntu system can be done via sudo or gksudo. If you really need a persistent Root login, the best alternative is to simulate a Root login shell using the following command...

IconsPage/IconWarning3.png

sudo -i

To enable the Root account (i.e. set a password) use:

sudo passwd root

Use at your own risk!

IconsPage/dont.png

Logging in to X as root may cause very serious trouble. If you believe you need a root account to perform a certain action, please consult the official support channels first, to make sure there is not a better alternative.

If for some reason you have enabled your root account and wish to disable it again, use the following command in terminal...

Manchester City to win EPL 2012 and The last 10 winners of the English league

The English Premier League (EPL) kicks off its 2012-13 edition Saturday and holders Manchester City start as the bookies favourite to retain their title.

EPL Chief Executive Richard Scudamore has no doubt that the Premier League will continue to capture people's imaginations around the world when the 21st season kicks off Saturday.

"It will have its critics, but it will have more people following it, there'll be more debate in workplaces on Monday morning, and it'll be football again," he was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

The Premier League had a thrilling title race last year, going down to the wire before Manchester City clinched it in the stoppage time of their last game against Queens Park Rangers after trailing 1-2. They needed a victory to stop Manchester United, who had already beaten Sunderland, from snatching the title to extend their record to 20 titles.

City are the 5-4 favourite, with William Hill and Ladbrokes, to retain its title, meaning a successful $4 bet will bring in $5 plus the original stake. Manchester United is the 9-4 second choice ahead of European champion Chelsea at 5-1.

The programme begins with seven games but the champions City start with a game against newly promoted Southampton Sunday, with United completing the opening round of games at Everton Monday.

The biggest news on the eve of the league is that Dutch striker Robin van Persie, the league's top scorer last season with 37 goals, has quit Arsenal to join United for a reported fee of 24 million pounds ($36.2 million).

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he had to trade the 29-year-old because he only had a year remaining on his contract and he had refused to sign a new one.

Arsenal though have already made some key signings. They brought in German striker Lukas Podolski from Cologne and also last season's French league top scorer Olivier Giroud from Montpellier.

The Gunners, who are also expecting to lose midfielder Alex Song to Barcelona, have roped in Spanish international Santi Carzola.

Chelsea have also made changes to their squad. They would be without their prolific striker Didier Drogba, who left in the summer to join Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua. The London club though made some big buys.

Belgian Eden Hazard joined the Blues in a deal worth 32 million pounds. He will be joined by German Marko Marin and another promising Brazilian youngster Oscar dos Santos Emboaba.

In the last ten years, Manchester United won the title five times, Chelsea thrice, Arsenal once and Manchester City their first last year.

The last 10 winners of the English league:

2011-12 – Manchester City

2010-11 – Manchester United

2009-10 – Chelsea

2008-09 – Manchester United

2007-08 – Manchester United

2006-07 – Manchester United

2005-06 – Chelsea

2004-05 – Chelsea

2003-04 – Arsenal

2002-03 – Manchester United

Indian NewsIndia lost $37 bn by not auctioning coal mines: Auditor :

ndia's exchequer could have been richer by Rs.1.85 lakh crore ($37 billion) if competitive bidding, rather than arbitrary allotment, was adopted to give coal blocks away, says the official auditor, faulting the government's policies yet again.

As the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the government rejected the finding. It termed as erroneous the back-of-the-envelop estimate of losses that nearly amounts to the country's budgeted income tax and customs mop up of Rs.1.95 lakh crore and Rs.1.86 lakh crore, respectively, for this fiscal.

National news :Government disconnects 51,000 telephone connections

The government has disconnected over 51,000 telephone numbers of such subscribers who had not registered themselves as a telemarketer but were involved in the activity, parliament was informed Friday.

Notices have been served on nearly 88,300 subscribers who have carried out similar violations, Minister of State for Communications and IT, Milind Deora said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.

As per the Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulations, 2010, no subscriber, who is not registered with the sector regulator TRAI as a telemarketer, shall make any commercial communications.

In case it is found that the commercial call was originated by a subscriber who is not registered with TRAI as a telemarketer, the originating access provider shall issue a notice to such subscriber forthwith yo discontinue the sending of such communications.

If such subscriber sends a commercial communication to any subscriber on a second occasion then his telecom services will be disconnected.

Government is aware that several calls and SMSs are being sent by subscribers, without getting themselves registered with TRAI as a telemarketer, by using normal telephone connections having numbers, other than the '140′ number series allotted to registered telemarketers, Deora said.

From the complaints data received from service providers, it is seen that the majority of complaints of unsolicited commercial communications are sent by telecom subscribers who were not registered as a telemarketer, he added.

International News:RIM Says Blackberry 10 Will Soon Be Ready To Licence

Research In Motion Ltd will soon be ready to licence its new
BlackBerry 10 operating system to other manufacturers, according to a
report on Monday.
The new platform is in the final stages of testing, and RIM is now
considering how other companies may be able to use it in a range of
products, Chief Executive Officer Thorsten Heins told Bloomberg News.
"QNX is already licensed across the automotive sector – we could do
that with BB10 if we chose to," Heins said in New York. "The platform
can be licensed."



Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM, whose BlackBerry devices have lost ground
to rivals like Apple Inc's iPhone and a range of devices that run on
Google Inc's Android software, is set to launch its own line of
devices that run on BB10 in the first quarter of 2013.
