hey simple question. i have physical access to machine system is auto-login enabled but i cannot do any changes due to not having root priveieges

earlier it was easy on other distribution the passwd was in /etc/passwd ( hashed of course )

now it is not there and /etc/shadow cannot be viewed by non-root

is there any way to gain back my machine without reinstaliing ?

< my distribution is manjaro xfce if it helps >

Boot into single user mode via your boot loader.
