    Arrow Changing Smoothwall's root password

    changing smoothwall's root password the easy way :

    reboot
    at splash screen press tab
    type in smoothwall single and enter
    change root password

    doing it with knoppix : (hard way)
    start knoppix
    start console

    su
    mount /dev/hda4 /mnt/hda4
    chroot /mnt/hda4 /bin/bash
    passwd root

    and you're done

    (note - if you're unsure as to which partition to mount, look for the partition with the /bin directory in, and mount that).

    Hope this helps - for some reason I could not boot into single-user mode on my smoothy.


    note that v3 have an issue with booting into single-user mode, a fix for that is being tested at the moment.

    Christ-mass is NOT for Christians. Jeremiah 10.
    Is the 10 Commandments for Christians?

    Saturday is the Seventh day, Sunday is the first day.
