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.
