Re: I cannot log in to my debian wheezy system!
I- m starting to get desperate! I found lots of instructions on the
web about how to solve this, but none of them works. Example, I
In grub press e ton edit options
add to init options
press b to boot
Then mount -o remount,rw /
(repeating new password twice)
and then giving new password.
Does not work, I cannot get into my system
