passwd in /var/etc/ - 24-August-2010, 20:39

I have been trying to reset my password on my dreambox and i read somewhere that i should go into tuxcommander and then into var/etc/ and then into Passwd and that the 1st line should look like this,
root:*****:0:0:root:/home/root:/bin/sh
and then edit itand it should look like this after the edit
root::0:0:root:/home/root:/bin/sh


but when I go into itthe first line looks like this,
bin/sh
so am i in the right file? has it already been edited? when i looked in var_init/etc and then in Passwd, the first line is as it should be. Its confusing. any help would be appreciated

you need to have TuxBox commander. You can download it via the Blue Panel then ADDONS. Just select the Gemini Server and, when it’s downloaded the catalogue, select PLUGINS and download Tuxbox Commander.

Once thats installed you can access it through Blue Panel, PLUGINS (Tools).

Fire it up and navigate to var/etc

Select the passwd file. Hit 4 to edit it.

You’ll see something like this:

root:$1$$3er43323sBBCAw.ofBbt.:0:0::/:/bin/sh
sshd:*:65532:65534::/:/bin/false
ftp:*:65533:65534::/:/bin/false
nobody:*:65534:65534::/:/bin/false

Your root password will obviously be different to the above. What you need to do is replace the first line with this:

root:$1$$34NPeumc9sBBCAw.oUaM80:0:0::/:/bin/sh

And you have to be *exact*.

That resets the password to “dreambox” (without the quotes - password is now dreambox)

the first line in var/etc/ is not the same as the line shown. it only got
bin/sh
all the rest of the lines are the same. so does that mean it been edited and i should just delete bin/sh and put the line
root:$1$$34NPeumc9sBBCAw.oUaM80:0:0::/:/bin/sh
in its place
