Need help with user/password or a new user - 22-June-2008, 18:36

I don't have the password for the root user, and the password isen't "the normal one". I know i can go to tuxbox Commander to the file /var/etc/passwd, and delete a string to reset the password.
But in an another post i read that you can copy the line and paste it in the file again and change "root" to whatever user name you want.

Will this keep both the root user and the new one? Will both of the act as admins?? Can u then access the dreambox with either one of them?

I want to keep both the root user and the new user.

Sorry for my english

telnet into your dream box from same network
it should ask for user but not password
type root
then type passwd ( enter )
type in a new password twice.
this should work.

Painful, but gets the job done
