Fedora 28 was released last week and it’s buttery smooth.

Many of the old issues with Nvidia graphics which required arcane spells and command line magic (which is the most powerful magic) to configure are GONE! Hooray!

Bizarrely, when you install Fedora 28 now, the user account is configured AFTER installation on THE FIRST boot up. Previously, everything was set up at installation, which I actually prefer.

Furthermore, root is not configured, meaning that UNLESS you set the root password, you won’t be able to wield ultimate command line magic.

But to set it up takes under 30 seconds. Ready? GO!

In the Terminal type:

sudo su -

it will ask for your admin/user password and you’ll get the “Spiderman” warning. Then type:


to set the password.
