How I do recover my password?
December 30, 2009 11:13AM
Hello Forum long time I dont post here. Since I have and old PC and a new one, I didn't use my old PC since one year, so... I forgot my login password on Elive Gem! How can I do recover, reset, erase or change my password, in order to login onto elive?
thanks in advance!

Hi,
You should log in root from a terminal like hitting Alt+Ctrl+F1 then login under root then just enter:
passwd your_user_name

Hope you still have your root password... If not that's a reeeaaaally big problem...

Humm, that will be mooore difficult to do anything so.
Maybe the best way is to go through livecd & an usb key, just backup what you need & then make a fresh install? (I also heard about a hacking system named CDKonboot or something like... But really, I don't know...) Sorry...

Hi,
this is a really bad problem. have rechecked this (because I have no idea how to solve it) but found the following:

I now thats for Red Hat but Elive uses also grub as bootloader. Please try. Good luck.
