Recover a lost `root` password
Switch to a graphical login
The [application]*DNF* package manager is used for updating installed packages. For more information about updating your system with [application]*DNF*, see the [citetitle]_{PRODUCT} System Administrator's Guide_, available at link:++https://docs.fedoraproject.org/++[].
The [application]*GNOME Initial Setup* utility will be displayed after you log in for the first time with any user account, as long as your first login is in the [application]*GNOME* desktop environment.
The `root` password, which is configured during the installation, is required for accessing the system as the `root` user. Without this password you will not be able to configure your system or install additional software. If you lost or forgot your `root` password, you can reset it by following the steps described in xref:install/Troubleshooting.adoc#sect-trouble-after-reset-root-password[Resetting the Root Password].
This chapter describes the initial setup tools which open after you finish the installation, reboot the system, and log in for the first time.
This utility allows you to configure several user-specific settings, such as system language or the default keyboard layout. Use the `Next` and `Previous` buttons at the top of the window to navigate between screens. Some screens (`Configure online accounts` in particular) are optional and can be skipped using the `Skip` button in the top right corner.
Two separate configuration tools are part of {PRODUCT}. If you installed the [application]*GNOME* desktop environment (the default {PRODUCT} environment, installed for example as part of the {PRODUCT} Workstation Edition), the [application]*GNOME Initial Setup* utility will open; for all other graphical environments, the [application]*Initial Setup* tool serves the same purpose.
Usually, drivers for system devices are already supported in the kernel provided by Red{nbsp}Hat Enterprise{nbsp}Linux. However, occasionally, support for devices that have been released recently could be missing. In these cases, a driver update enabling your device may be available.
You can control which packages will be installed by selecting an environment in the `Software Selection` dialog in the graphical installation (see xref:install/Installing_Using_Anaconda.adoc#sect-installation-gui-software-selection[Software Selection]). This dialog does not provide a way to choose individual packages, only predefined sets. However, you can use the [application]*DNF* package manager to install additional packages after the installation. See the [citetitle]_{PRODUCT} System Administrator's Guide_, available at link:++https://docs.fedoraproject.org/++[], for more information.
