Can't log into MineOS - Software password incorrect

Post by Rilic »

I installed MineOS onto my dietpi installation v7.3.2, but I can't log into the root account using the software password.

Here's the output of systemctl status mineos:

Code: Select all

dietpi@Ouroboros:~$ sudo systemctl status mineos
● mineos.service - MineOS (DietPi)
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/mineos.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled)

I've checked multiple times to make sure the password I'm entering is correct, and indeed it is.

Any ideas on what I should do?
Cheers

just out of curiosity, did you tried using the root user password?

Ah, that logged me in! However, the documentation says to use the global software password:
https://dietpi.com/docs/software/gaming/#mineos

Is this not the intended method, or is the documentation wrong?

I'm having MineOS login issues after moving to a fresh Bullseye install.

Here's what I'm seeing in the terminal:

Code: Select all

● mineos.service - MineOS (DietPi)
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/mineos.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: active (running) since Sat 2021-09-11 09:14:38 PDT; 28min ago

     CGroup: /system.slice/mineos.service
             └─683 /usr/local/bin/node webui.js

Sep 11 09:16:13 DietPi MineOS[683]: Unsuccessful login attempt for username: root
[....]
I'm using the root password, although I've also tried the global software password too. If it helps with troubleshooting, I installed MineOS during the initial DietPi setup process, whereas I'd previously (on Buster) installed it after the fact.

Any ideas? I can't get past the MineOS WebUI's login screen.

Incidentally, there's a typo: misslabled [sic]. Where should I report that bug?

It's fine to report it in this forum. Where exactly is the issue you found? I could have a look to DietPi code then. Or due you mean message on service output? This is a message from MineOS and I guess it would need to be reported at MineOS GitHub https://github.com/hexparrot/mineos-node/issues

Regarding the login, MineOS is using OS users to login. Means every user available on your system should work. Did you checked if login as user dietpi is working?

I recently did a reinstall and I'm having the same issue. Using the OS login details for root is no longer letting me log in :(

I'm getting the same log output as @pintapass, with unsuccessful login attempts. Not sure what other logs I can check.

Any suggestions?

Coincidentally I just did test installs on Stretch, Buster and Bullseye (x86_64 VMs) and it worked well on all of them. I was able to login as root with the root users password. Since we do not touch any password related setting during the install, it is impossible that this comes from anywhere else than from the root user login.

To check logs:

Code: Select all

journalctl -u mineos

Could it be special characters inside the user password? usually you should be able to login with every OS user existing.
