I've read the howto document about recovering the forgotten passwords. Fot booting system in single user mode, i have to edit Grub but, i couldn't.
I've pressed the e key and i add the word at the end of the line, which was startted bye kernel /boot....
But while booting sytem, archlinux ask me, root password for maintaining the system.
How can i boot my archlinux system with single user mode?
It is always good to have Knoppix CD around.
Boot Knoppix CD, then in terminal, type:
use that information to mount the partition on which you need to change root password. For example (assuming partition is /dev/hda1):
Remove CD, boot the original system and try the new password.
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hd
Hope this helps.
Thanks lot, it seems easier than other ways, i'll try this as soon as i can, but i still don't know why i can't boot in single user mode :(
