    Exclamation [VT100Term] how to became root using on 1.1.4?

    Hi all, the question is simple, till 1.1.3 new user is added: Mobile, that is not a root user, i've tried to su root, it ask for a pwd (alpine or dottie) but always report invalid pwd.

    PS: if i log in via SSH -l root x.x.x.x when it ask for the pwd alpine it's ok, then i'm in with root privileges.

    Thanks for the help!

    Try to change the VT100 app ownership (by using chown) to root (0), it has probably been installed as mobile (501).

    chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Term-vt100.app
    To switch it back to mobile use this:

    chown -R mobile:wheel /Applications/Term-vt100.app

    Alternate way...
    login -pf root
    ... then enter your root password.
