Hello all!
Congratulations to the devel team (already 30K!).
Trying to put the old version working on a PII-400 MHz_64MbRAM (snip!) and I no longer remember what's the root/password to access for the first boot (in text-mode - blagblagblag.org used to have it but not anymore)
Tried to find any messages about it with no luck.
Can somebody help?

Mario :?:

On some older installs, it sets it root to "blagblag", if you didn't change it on firstboot.

Thanks for your input.
I used it already and doesn't work; login: root, passwd: blagblag - o/p login incorrect.(!)
Also used login: blagblag; passw: blagblag....(+ other arrangements w/ blags)
Nothing happens.
Minus well get the last release.

Regards,

Mario

If you're experienced with linux you can boot from your BLAG CD, type 'linux rescue' at the prompt and when you get to a shell, edit your /etc/shadow on the mounted hard drive so that this line (usually the first one) goes from looking something like this:

root:TONSOFRANDOMSTUFFHERE:12842:0:99999:7:::

and then find your user's password line, e.g.:

felix:TONSOFRANDOMSTUFFHERE:12794:0:99999:7:::

and copy what would be in the TONSOFRANDOMSTUFFHERE from the user's line to the area where that would be in root's line. Then you can reboot and log in as root using the same password you use as your user and then change it using 'passwd'. Otherwise you'll have to find another method (reinstall is one of them)

Or boot up into rescue mode, and after mounting your install (which rescue mode can do automatically) do:

Code:
chroot /mnt/sysimage
passwd


I haven't done it before, but it should work.

Thanks lads but I didn't even create any useradd or anything at all.
I'm trying to access the sys for the very first time and w/o GUI, I'm greeted in text-mode for login:

Anyway I'll try your fixes.

Regards,
Mario
