By default, Ubuntu and it's variants do not set a password for root

which has the the affect of preventing anyone from logging in as root.

If you don't need root then don't enable it as there are plenty of ways

around this and thus prevents people from brute-forcing the root password.



To run a command with root privileges, you are correct that sudo is the

way to do it and then append the command; sudo ./setup.sh

Before you do that, you may want to try; bash -v ./setup.sh

that should spit out some information about why the script is failing.

I suspect it is trying to copy something to a location that needs

root/sudo access.



Just to be curious, what is this script supposed to be installing? *Is

it form a source you trust? *I usually open a script from a source I am

not familiar with and read through it so see if it is going to do

something stupid.

From Garry:
Thank you, the script setup.sh is for a compiler called qb64, I do trust the source, and use it on my laptop, but that is running Linux Mint 10, I also did look at the script, to see if there was anything wrong, it is ok. However I also found out, when qb64 compiles, it needs 500mb RAM, and I only have 260, so this is also a problem.
I do have a swap partition, and have been told, that ubuntu can use that when it needs more RAM ?,..not sure on that.
Thank you from Garry
