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)
   Active: active (running) since Fri 2021-07-09 17:16:39 BST; 31s ago

   CGroup: /system.slice/mineos.service
           └─3326 /usr/local/bin/node webui.js

Jul 09 17:17:05 Ouroboros MineOS[3326]: Unsuccessful login attempt for username: root
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?
