Changing the root password and pacman updates

Postby The Shocker » 09 Oct 2020, 04:13

1. Is it OK with change the root password, or will it break something?
2. Can I login as root and run pacman -Syu to update the system, or will that break something?

I may be a little paranoid, but I don't like the idea of leaving an unpatched device on my network with a root password that's public in the rune documentation.

Any help greatly appreciated for a newbie.
