I am trying to get into single user/rescue mode on my slackware 9.0 installation, because i have forgotten my root password...
i would then like to edit etc/passwd
(I know that the password could be shadowed too, but it isn't)
So my problem is now:
When i try to get into single user/rescue mode with for example
boot: linux rescue
or boot: linux init=/bin/sh
or boot: linux single
everything looks fine, until there comes something like this:
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03.43
I haven't found anything about the 03.43 error... does anyone have any idea what could cause this?
thx for all your help!
