    Default Re: Difficulties with return from password adjustment

    There have been several misunderstandings during our discussion. The biggest now seems to be that I all the time thought that you could not login as root because of not being able to set a password. That seems not to be the case.

    As it seems that you "only" have some strange things in your Tumbleweed installation, the only thing I can advise you is to start one or more new threads in the Tubmbleweed forum describing them one by one in an exact and precise manner (not forgetting such things as: I use LVM, etc.). Thus your fellow Tumbleweed users may come to your rescue.

    Would any more system administrators and testers like to check if their password reset will completely work in single user mode as expected?

    Here resetting works but I do it differently, simpler, no external
    system needed:

    1. Boot with kernel parameter 'init=/bin/bash'
    You'll soon see root prompt without the need to log in.

    2. # 'passwd root'

    3. Reboot
