I just removed the graphics driver from my Fedora 17 installation but forgot to restore the backup copy of xorg.conf.
Using a LiveUSB drive, I can access the hard drive as a mounted drive. However, I can not modify files since I lack writing rights. How do I identify myself to the hard drive as root from a console opened on the LiveUSB drive?
su - only makes me the root user for the USB drive.
Right now I could just look up the rename command and then use it in repair mode, but having console access at the same time with an internet browser makes these things so much easier, so I'd like to learn how to do this.
