Reddit: I lost my account password, what can I do?

Sunday 9th of August 2015 04:37:34 AM

I won't lie i'm not very knowledgeble in Linux, I had a classmate set it up for me a few months ago. Stupid me didn't bother to remember the password, and now I'm in a weird situation. It's not the root password, it's the password for the admin account. Somehow it bugged out and logged me in after a long time of password guessing. So now I can change the password but I need the original password to be able to change it. Is there a way for me to reset it or figure out my password, or do I have to do a reinstall, and if so how do I do that? I don't mind having to do a full install if I have to. I'm on Xubuntu 14.10

Thanks!

diff -u: What's New in Kernel Development

Boot times can become slow on systems with many CPUs, partly because of the time it takes to crank up all the RAM chips. Mel Gorman recently submitted some patches to start up RAM chips in parallel instead of one after the other. One of the main problems with trying to implement such a feature—and one of the main reasons such patches haven't made it into the kernel before—is the need to avoid slowing things down for smaller systems.
