Run pkd_mkdb(8) by hand first, to make sure your password files are updated. [And see if that fixes your problem by itself.] Once you have done that: Running chpass(1) *should* work. Since it didn't, I suggest looking at the password file. Use vipw(8) for that, and see if there is anything in the password field for the root password. -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
