If I change my password

will the new password also work for sudo operations and everything else like before, or is it just for the login? iirc the installer said something like ‘use the same password for administrator’ or similar. will that have to be changed too?

sorry for the n00b question, ive been using linux quite a few years but i never knew the answer to this

passwd <username> will change your current user’s password.
You can use your new password for login and perform sudo <command> operations.

If your current user’s password and the your root account password are the same, the latter won’t be change with the above operation.
