about six months ago I installed Arch on my laptop, and after not being able to use the laptop for a while, I have forgotten my passwords.  Does anyone have an idea how to get into it with something like single user mode so that I can bypass the login, password and once in edit the administrator password?  I can be reached at vincent_dorio@yahoo.com.  Thanks

The definition of simplicity is the same for Arch and for me. And of course its is clearly stated on the faq. What is not clear to me is the definition of transparency. It may be "the user does not see whats going on because its transparent". Obviously its not the Archs definition. So, someone should define it.

about six months ago I installed Arch on my laptop, and after not being able to use the laptop for a while, I have forgotten my passwords. Does anyone have an idea how to get into it with something like single user mode so that I can bypass the login, password and once in edit the administrator password? I can be reached at vincent_dorio@yahoo.com. Thanks
