Hi Xeno.......
I try to install the Kernel 4.4.0 for SAM 440, but I don't remember my root password, so I can't save at boot and lib.

How I can recove the password if our systems don't comes with GRUB ?

Thanks

Hi Ribdevil,

You have to boot in the single-user mode. Add just " 1" to the end of the line of the boot arguments:

Code: Select all
U-Boot> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sda2 1"


If you do get the prompt, the / filesystem may not be mounted rw (although "mount" may say it is). Do:

Code: Select all
mount -o remount,rw /


If that doesn't work (it might not), just type "mount" to find out where "/" is mounted. Let's say it is on /dev/sda2. You'd then type:

Code: Select all
mount -o remount,rw /dev/sda2


If you can do this, just type "passwd" once you are in and change it to whatever you like.

Good luck! :-)

Cheers,

Christian

Or edit the a1boot.conf

Code: Select all
Debian /boot/uImage root=/dev/sda2 1

Thanks Xeno.

Instaled, now I'm testing 4.4.0

All the soft installed works, it's the base of LUBUNTU 14.04.

I'm installing some other, like sysinfo and others to test a little more.

When Installing Lubuntu 16.04 select both Lubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Mate Desktop.
