Reset root password
Revision as of 09:38, 29 March 2009 by SkonesMickLoud
I came back from vacation after doing an Arch64 install and like the genius I forgot my 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.)
