Are you saying you're getting the login error when you try to login in from Windows via smb? If so, this is a completely different problem than the one I gave you a fix for.

I am running version 4.9 with KDE desktop. I am trying to set this machine
up as a simple file server.

Can you log in to KDE?

I get message containing nmbd[187] as I try to log in. Is there a way to
disable or edit smb.conf from single user mode? If really thing this might
be part of the source of my problem.

I'm not sure, but I don't think your problem is with FreeBSD, but with Samba.

Take a look at some of these docs:

Note the following additional information:
1) If your problem is with logging in via samba, you'll probably get better
   assistance posting your question to the samba mailing lists:
2) If your problem is with samba, you'll most likely need to include your
   smb.conf file in order to get any decent help.

Cheers Chris

I just started running FreBSD and I was setting up Samba when this


Reboot the system by hitting <ctrl>+<alt>+<delete>, while it's booting back
up, press space bar when you see the "press <enter> to boot or ..." and
it finishes counting down.  (You don't mention which version of FreeBSD
using, but FreeBSD 5 has a spiffy menu here where you can just select a menu
item for single-user mode) At the prompt, enter "boot -s" to boot into
user mode.  When asked for a default shell, just hit <enter> to accept the
default.  Once you have a shell prompt, enter "fsck -y" and then "mount -a".

Now you're logged in and can execute commands as root.  Enter "passwd
to change the password for <user>.  If you omit <user>, you'll change the

good luck.
