    Hands up who knows Xandros

    Howdy,

    Who knows how to get to terminal session or prompt before the minibook loads up into the log in screen with Xandros.

    I've got 100+ kids with minibooks who are changing the password and then forgetting them...how can I reset password without wiping the minibook and starting again...using terminal i can sudo passwd user

    Try this:


    1. Boot into single user mode
    2. #sh /etc/rc
    3. #passwd yourusername
    4. #reboot
