[maemo-users] Getting root on OS2008

From: Marius Gedminas marius at pov.lt

 1. Enable the Maemo Extras repository
 2. Install openssh
 3. Define a root password (openssh's installer prompts you for this)
 4. Open xterm
 5. ssh root at localhost
    Type the password you set in step 3.

No 3rd-party packages or R&D mode necessary.

For extra geeks like me (warning: vi knowledge necessary):

 6. visudo
 7. Add

      user ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
      root ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

    at the end.
