Snow Leopard: Sudo root not accepting the password I set.
Ok so opened Directory Utility, unlocked it and then selected Enable Root User and set a password, locked Directory Utility opened terminal and typed sudo root.
When I entered the password I set I just get "Sorry, try again". Have tried going back into Directory Utility and changing the password but get the same thing, any ideas?

$ sudo -s
...and enter your password.
If that doesn't work, is the user account you're using an administrative account?

Same problem here
None of these solutions have worked for me.
I'm trying to install rails and i need sudo access.
the command is:
sudo gem install rails
When prompted for the password I get: "Sorry, try again"
I have enabled the root user through CoreServices.
I believe that my user account had admin rights. It says "admin" under the account name in Users. Besides, if it didn't I'd expect to see some kind of permissions error when enabling or changing the root account password.
Any help is appreciated.
