    Try that command as root in a terminal

    su then root password
    then passwd

    That is really weird, every distro I have tried, that is how I changed or set the password.

    And I have tried quite a few.
    Which distro is this?

    # passwd
    Changing password for user root.
    passwd: Module is unknown

    # passwd ant
    Changing password for user ant.
    passwd: Module is unknown

    and i also tried the option

    if you could post the output of
    Code:
    which passwd
    I am sure somebody on this forum could explain what the output means.
    What distro is this?
