Re: Change my username on cloned system

Yes that makes sense. When you are typing " su - " you are switching to the root user so you will have to type root's password to get to a root prompt. Using sudo is different. As I've already explained somewhere in this novel we're making that sudo is simply temporarily elevating your acc...
