There isn't one. Set it with 'sudo passwd root'

Its "superuser" - the thread title is confusing :D

Root has no password on Raspbian , therefore you have to use
sudo su.
It is recommeneded to drop su and use sudo instead.

If you are on the newest Raspbian and booting for the first time :
Username : pi
Password : raspberry

You won't see any stars or anything , just type blindly.

Code: Select all
sudo -i

will get you into a superuser shell.
