User password change


I have a user on my FC box of "rpmbuild" and I do not remember the password. When I want to work as this user, from root, I simply su to rpmbuild and do what i need to do. However, I have another person who I do not want to have root credentials, but I want instead for her to log in as rpmbuild - seeing as I do not know the password, how do I reset it for rpmbuild, using the CLI?

Thank you!

Re: User password change

As root do this:
passwd rpmbuild
That will let you set the password.
