/etc/sudoers contains informations about who has rights to access root
level privileges (though I know it can do much more, like giving only
at the bottom of /etc/sudoers you should have this line:
username ALL=(ALL) ALL
where username is the name of user that will have root level
privileges, so in my case it is like this:
darkestkhan ALL=(ALL) ALL
You will probably have to run in maintenance (or rescue, forgot how it
was called) mode, after that (or reboot) everything should work
