Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:01 pm

I am running it live and cannot enter SU for some reason, instruction clearly says use toor as password but it doesnt work, I even changed the password to "password" and it still says authentication failure wtf..

─[✗]─[[email protected]]─[~]
└──╼ $su
Password:
su: Authentication failure
┌─[✗]─[[email protected]]─[~]
└──╼ $passwd
Changing password for user.
(current) UNIX password:
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
┌─[[email protected]]─[~]
└──╼ $su
Password:
su: Authentication failure
