    Hallo allemaal (hello everybody)

    Helaas ben ik het wachtwoord van antiX kwijt.
    Hoe kan ik dit herstellen?

    Op een Nederlandstalige website kom ik voor Ubuntu en Linux Mint dan dit tegen:
    https://sites.google.com/site/computertip/wachtwoordvergeten

    Maar mijn opstartregel ziet er anders uit.
    Hoe los ik dit op?

    I lost my password. How to fix this? (With Grub?)

    I think you can press “e” at the grub boot line and at the end of the “linux” line type ” 1″. Then press F10 which should start the line and boot to init level 1 (as we do not have systemd init) leaving you at the root user prompt. From there you can type “passwd USER” where “USER” is the username of the account that needs a new password.

    Oke. I tried. After F10 de system didn’t boot by itself.
    After booting, I tot the line:
    Give root password for maintenance (or type Control -D to continue). But that didn’t work.

    OK sorry, it has been a while since I have done it this way (last time it did not ask for the password), normally I change the password with the live cd/usb I installed with. It looks as though you can type “rw init=/bin/bash” instead of “1”. I just tested this and it seems to work, though I had to hold to power button to turn the computer off.

    I guess this behaviour changed with a modification to /etc/inittab to

    # What to do in single-user mode.
    ~~:S:wait:/sbin/sulogin
    

    as my older system specifies single user mode to be /bin/bash

    # What to do in single-user mode.
    ~~:S:wait:/bin/bash

    No problem. I tried a few combinations with the example of the Dutch website and I succeeded. It was a little bit what You wrote here.
    Thank You for reacting!
