login password reset

Post by hhhh4535 »

Hello ppl,

I just tried to install my fresh diet-pi and changed the password inside the security setting befor changing my hostname at the start of setup.

It seems that my keyboard setup has changed somehow because the used passwords root+unix-user do not seem to work anymore. :cry:
There is no # on [shift]+[3]

Is there a (simple) sollution to this ? Exept reinstall?

many thanks for your report. Are you still able to login as user dietpi? If yes you can do following

Code: Select all

sudo passwd root
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
