I have a serious problem about unlocking root account in kali linux 2020.2 Gnome. First of all, I installed the kali linux 2020.1 vbox version and I was able to successfully use the root account there. The processes I did there after the installation were:
sudo passwd root (setting new password) sudo passwd -u root (for unlocking root acc)
After that, I can login and use the root account without any problems. However, when I install kali linux 2020.2 installer instead of the vbox version of kali linux, that is, when I install a real OS version instead of the virtual machine version, I am having trouble logging in to the root account while changing the user. Although I entered the correct password, I cannot log into my account, but when I check it from my default account, there is an account that matches the information I entered.
Maybe I thought it was caused by the virtual machine, downloaded the iso file again and installed kali linux 2020.2 gnome edition directly on my computer, but the result did not change. What is the reason that I cannot access the root account when I install it as the main operating system while I can access the root account in the virtual machine version? Help me pls…
