When using Konsole with commands like SU Root and entering password, it comes up blank instead of with a username. So if I did something like DNF search Thermald, then it would say you must be in Root, but Konsole will not let me.
I have done in terminal the command of sudo passwd root, then put in new Root password, to no avail.
you are saying that neither the su command not sudo passwd root are working correctly and that you get no prompt in response?
I currently don’t reproduce the problem, maybe I need to check if the new installation media have such problem. It might also be a problem related to network name resolution.
I will investigate more and thanks if you have some more info to provide.
