May I ask here who made this AWS AMI image for slackware?
 
I need to run slackware under AWS badly? This is the image description: http://thecloudmarket.com/image/ami-...-d-e-f-k-l-n-3

May I ask here who made this and what is the default root password for ssh login?

Thanks a lot.

What have you tried?
Did you try no password, as in a normal installation?

</guessing>

Yes I tried with no password, but no luck. I think I need to roll my own Slackware AMI

I've no idea what the AMI here is, nor how to download this image, but have you tried to simply clear the root password from /etc/shadow ?

Thanks for the hints.

I finally solved the problem.

1. Stop the slackware instance in question.
2. unattach the root ebs volume
3. launch a fresh instance using default amazon AMI (with the access key name as amazon.pem here).
4. reattach the slackware root ebs volume to the new amazon as /dev/sdf
5. ssh into the new amazon instance and mount /dev/sdf to /mnt
6. copy the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys to /mnt/root/.ssh/
7. chroot /mnt and run 'passwd root' to reset the root password
8. umount /dev/sdf
9. reattach the slackware root ebs back to previous slackware instance in question as block /dev/sda1
10. Restart the slackware instance in question.
11. ssh -i amazon.pem root@dns_of_slackware_instance_here
All is fine, but weird to find out that an ubuntu kernel is running within slackware territory :).

Code:

root@cloud-slack:/etc/rc.d# cat /etc/slackware-version
Slackware 14.0
root@cloud-slack:/etc/rc.d# uname -a
