Software :: Password Command Doesn't Recognize Valid Password

Nov 23, 2010

I migrated an old SuseLinux 10 box to Debian (Lenny) a couple months ago, and apparently no one noticed you can't change your password. Root can do it because passwd doesn't ask root for a password, but no one else can (although they can log in, passwd doesn't recognize their login password when they attempt to set a new password and it asks).I changed authentication to use blowfish when I setup the server (because the SuseLinux 10 system used it) and apparently the passwd command doesn't work with that. Apparently I need to update another configuration file or possibly get a different program to update the passwd file if I use blowfish. Any ideas?

The weird thing is that it can generate a blowfish hash to set a new password, but apparently can't generate one to authenticate the user.something changed recently and it is no longer generating a blowfish hash when setting a new password. It is generating a hash with only 13 characters. And I can clearly see that many users have changed their passwords.

Feb 10, 2011

I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application I've been working needs to be initialized on boot up. So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line. How can I do it? I've seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...

General :: Passing SSH A Password Through Command Line?

Aug 4, 2010

I am writing a script to get hardware information of a particular UNIX machine. To do this, I ftp a shell script (commands to get h/w information) to the target machine and then use SSH to remote the remote script.With FTP, I can pass a password accepted as input the shell script. How can I pass the same password to SSH ? This is because I do not want the user to enter the password twice.

Ubuntu :: Lost Password - Can't Boot To Command Line

Sep 1, 2011

I don't recall my Ubuntu password.**

I found instructions regarding recovery.

They involve pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1 while booting the Ubuntu live CD.

If I allow the live CD to boot, I arrive at a Ubuntu GUI.

However, if I press Ctrl-Alt-F1, the monitor (HDMI TV) goes blank and indicates "no signal

correcting the password from a GUI (can I just go to a command prompt from there somehow, and work from that command prompt?) or getting my video to display when I press Ctrl-Alt-F1?

** (I remember trying to set up the system with NO password).

It's absurd to require one.

Especially so if a person with a live CD can simply change it (I guess at least the change would be detected).

Ubuntu :: CLI Version Of 10.04 - When Rebooted The Command-line Login Would Not Accept My Password

Jun 8, 2010

I have an old PC (130mb RAM, 6gb hard drive).

I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu 10.04 using the Alternate CD. The machine was wiped, and I used most of the default settings.

I used a thirteen character user id which consisted of mixed case letters and numbers, and an eighteen character password that contains mixed case letters and numbers and a # sign.

When I rebooted, the command-line login would not accept my password. I assumed I had somehow made a mistake, and just wiped the machine again and reinstalled. This time I was very careful with the user name/pw.

Again, the command-line login did not accept my password!

On a hunch, I took an old Ubuntu 7.10 Alternate CD and erased the machine again. I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu. AGAIN --- it will not accept my password even though I'm 100% sure it is correct.

Fedora Installation :: F11 Grub Will Not Recognize Password

Sep 27, 2009

I have just installed Fedora 11 64bit on a new hard disk, using Intel 975BX2 motherbord, 3Gbyte RAM, 320Gbyte hard disk etc., USB mouse and keyboard. The installation went fine, but when I enter the password for the boot (I assume GRUB was installed) it fails to recognise the password. Do this three times and the boot segment ??? fails to initialise.

I recall a linux magazine i buy indicating that you have to copy and paste the password manually after installation, but i cannot recall the article date. Is this a problem - the password protection for the GRUB boot loader does not work at installation time when using the graphical interface ?. I did not use any odd characters - basic letters and numbers.

Fedora :: 10 Loading Directly To Command Line?

Sep 18, 2009

I decided on a whim to pursue certifications in other operating systems (currently 70-620 and 70-290 certified with Microsoft) and bought a book on Fedora 10 and installed it on my extra PC. First issue I ran into was that due to my graphics card being an ATI I needed to run in text mode (based off posts on these forums) then once I finally got everything under control and installed, it loads directly into Command Prompt (you folks call it GRUB right?) I can log in as root but I can't do anything this way.It won't even allow me to do things like accept the end user license agreement or create new users or see the GUI.

Fedora :: F12: Ten-second 'DNS' Delay For Command-line Apps?

Dec 15, 2009

I'm experiencing a peculiar problem with Fedora 12. There is a ten-second delay when various command-line applications (e.g. ssh, wget) connect to remote machines for the first time. The delay is also seen when the remote machine name does not exist.Subsequent connections to the same remote machine are immediate.This isn't a DNS delay - the host and dig commands return immediately, for both existing and non-existant hostnames. It's not a reverse DNS lookup by the remote machine either: other Fedora 10 machines do not experience this delay and neither did my two Fedora 12 machines when they were running Fedora 10.

time this was something to do with nscd, the name service caching daemon. Stopping nscd changes the delay to five seconds, but subsequent connections are no longer immediate - there is again a 5 second delay. This implies that nscd is caching the names correctly.The delays are always precisely 10 seconds, or 5 seconds when nscd is not running. I have confirmed this with the time command. There appears to be no odd network traffic (tested with tcpdump) and nscd appears to be running normally. I've confirmed this with a Fedora 12 live CD as well - nscd is not started at boot, but once started, the machine behaves in exactly the way described above.

Fedora :: How To Access The Grub Or Command Line

Dec 18, 2009

with that said i burned fedora 8, 10, and 11 checked the sha1 verified everything was fine i had originally installed fedora 8 on an old pc i had from windows XP without any problems messed with it some, upgraded to 10 again no problems. tired to update 11 got a message about ext3 not found ext4 not found, re installed 10 the loader loads up now i have a blank screen with a cursor it the left hand corner

again i had 10 installed fine prior to all this can any one point me in the right direction to solve this issue or am i way over my head trying to figure this stuff out. i have spent 3 days searching these forums.

i'm just not quite sure what i need to do. oh, i tried to install 8 again and it wouldn't take either. i think the 10 problem has something to do with the graphic driver it's a geforce 7400 nvidia and something to do with the grub, but like i said i get a blinking cursor and not quite sure how to access the grub or command line.
