Both of roo and root password of honeywall were lost recently. Several ways were tried but failed:
1. single mode
failed because of the following prompt: root password for maintanance (or type control-d to continue)
grub was edited as follows:
kernel /boot/***** root=/dev/hda2 ro init=/bin/bash
and a root shell was sucessfully retrieved.
/etc/passwd and /etc/shadow could be edited,
but there was no "passwd" command for changing passwords.
I would be very appreciated if any help can be given. Thx
