Try <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F1>, then login as root. I think kuser probably forgot to run pwd_mkdb -- lucky for you :-) If that doesn't work, follow the instructions for a "forgotten root password" ('tis in the FAQ). When you're in single user mode, try `grep root /etc/master.passwd'. If something comes back, type `passwd root' to reset root's password. If nothing comes back, you'll have to add a line for root manually in /etc/master.passwd. Then run pwd_mkdb /etc/master.passwd. Whatever you do, type `exit' or <Ctrl>+D now. -- Josh > > Jimmy. > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
