Reset root password
Revision as of 15:02, 5 November 2008 by Warriant
I came back from vacation after doing an Arch64 install and like the genius I am forgot root password. To recover the password, do the following:
- Boot your install CD and enter the bash shell.
# mount [your root partition -- e.g. /dev/sda3] /mnt
# chroot /mnt
# passwd root
- (Set a new password.)
