Ok, here is the deal. i finally got my 13w3 to vga adapter (with DIP-switches) and it works great.
Powered up my onyx2 and there are several accounts on it, and i don't have the password.
Now....i read that you can remove the rootpassword from the /etc/passwd file.
So i put in the first disc of IRIX and loaded the installation program.
After that i opened a shell with
#> /root/bin/vi /root/etc/passwd
i deleted the entry between the first and the second column (:)
and saved with:
All went well and i returned to inst.
Please wait.. . . . .
Ready to restart the system. Restart?
Answered yes, allowing inst to clean up the volume header.
Ready to restart the system. Restart? [y,n] yes
The system rebooted and when i tried to login as root it did not work.
It still asks for a password and leaving it blank doesnt work.
Ok...now what did i do wrong here
I've been at it all day long and getting pretty desperate.
