How to change boot-up delay and root password.

To change the timing of boot-up delay go to:

/boot/defaults/loader.conf

Edit the last line in the loader.conf file to desired delay at:

Speed up boot time
autoboot_delay="02"   <-- indicates delay in seconds

To change root password

During system boot-up, enter a single user mode

Then type:

mount -uw /

Next type:

passwd

Enter your new password for root

Next type:

exit

Now, you can login with your new root’s password :slight_smile:
