For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hi, I'm Mr.med. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
I'm sorry about the issue, first let's reset your root password, please follow these steps :
1-Boot the system and select the normal boot menu from the list. Once selected, in the “Boot Options” box type
init=/bin/bash if you are using GRUB Boot loader
linux init=/bin/bash if you are using LILO Boot Loader
2-This will launch you straight into a Bash shell prompt which comes up even before the Single User mode loads and has the “/” root file system mounted. type : mount if it doesn't work type : mount -o remount,rw
3-Now, simply type the passwd command and enter a new password
let me know the results please
I'm sorry but i can't, please follow my steps, if you need further assistance, reply back to me and i will gladly continue to help
What is the model and brand of your windows computer, it is a laptop or a desktop?
Do you want to mount the NTFS drive to Linux or Windows computer?
also did you tried to fix Linux suse issue?
unfortunately no, Do you have openSUSE installation DVD?
You can get one by downloading the ISO file and burn it into a DVD, boot from that DVD and follow the steps below :
Note : it is likely to be /dev/sda1, if using SATA or SCSI. If using IDE, you can try /dev/hda1.
For your second question : Do you want to mount the NTFS drive to Linux or Windows computer?
Ok, let me know when you are available
Are you there?
Ok good! now insert the DVD into the Redear and follow the steps below :
1-Select “Resue System” and login as root. No password ***** ***** here.
2-Use the commands
Yes there is a space between sda1 and /mnt
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt
yes a space, you can also try the command without "-o remount,rw"
Please run this command fsck /dev/sda1 and try again
Now please run the commands below :
This error means that there is no /bin/bash directory inside chroot. If you have /mnt/somedir/usr/bin/bash then execute chroot /mnt/somedir /usr/bin/bash
Ok, did you tried the command, has everything worked out?
Try ls command to show directories, let me know when you are available
Yes, so has everything worked out please?
Please try chroot /mnt/somedir /usr/bin/bash
Ok great! hope it works out
Do you still need help ?
Did you changed the Linux Password *****?
I'm sorry i can't call you, let me open your question to other experts
this is a test
due to site bugs, i will communicate one line at a time
you can either reinstall Linux, or boot off another device, mount the "root" dev as a satellite,
and manually clear the encrypted root password.
This is a test to see whether I can enter multiple lines of text; it was posting a silly error message about "an unexpected error occurred," which is, like, extremely informative.
You heard I'm in NJ? You heard incorrectly: I'm in FL!
If there's no way to log in, nobody can remote into your machine.
I made it CLEAR how to proceed.
