Im trying to get into my system for first time in 2 years, i've forgotten all of my login info.. is there a back door..BTW ive never gone behind the scenes with this o/s before..idiots details please if you can help
i have a login screen looking for username then password. i didnt build this system. is there a back door or some way i can get into this as an administrator?
i have tried to figure the command screens but not a detailed enough walk through for me found yet today
Have you read the link referenced by anishakaul in the thread I pointed out? That states it in the easiest terms possible how to go about resetting the root password. Just reboot and when in the bootloader screen (Grub or LILO) perform the actions as indicated on that page.
If you've read that page, then what part do you not understand?
