DSL customization and other issues
Issue: I cannot set a root password. It is sooo agrravating. When I boot up, I go into the CLI and type sudo su, giving me root access. I then type 'passwd root'.
It then prompts me to set a new root password.
I cannot type anything ARGHH. It's not letting me do anything but hit enter. I can type fine before that command, but as soon as I try and enter a root password, I cannot type anything except hitting enter.
What solution is there for this?
Customization: DSL comes with a lot of great stuff, but here's what I'd like to do.
I'd like to have it all CLI. No gui. I'm not sure how to do this on DSL.
Also. I'd like to get rid of all the apps except a few. All I want left is firefox, a text editor, and i'll install some form of LAMP and perl.
I don't have time to manually remove all these things that I don't want, so is there an easier way to do this?
Thanks for checking the problem out.
