[solved] N950 ssh - need root password
Hopefully it is not a dummy question, but I scanned all forums here already.
I would like to
into N950, but I do not know the password.
I need it in order to update APT list with my repo.
The default root password should be rootme
indeed! thank you very much, it is *rootme*
If you consider the issue solved, please change the thread’s title so that it begins with [SOLVED]
Despite that the comment about root password is VEEEERY useful (!!!) I was asking about where I can find the root password too, there are at least two other methods to manage the device in ssh mode as I know.
The first is launching the SDK application that shows the temporary developer password. Don't close it and - regardless if your are using the device connected to the Qt IDE or not - you can login with ssh developer@device_ip with the password shown.
The second method is to use the makeroot command that you can download and install following the readme file (if I remember correctly) that you find in the instructions on how to connect the device to the computer.
The third - yep, there is a third method - you can ssh the device using the rsa key instead of the user/password acces. This is the way the device use when connecting in the usual way with your development IDE.
Note that the last update for the N950 disables ssh'ing as root (see /etc/init/ssh.conf).
The only way left to ssh into the device is to ssh as 'developer', the sdk connect tool will give a password.
Or to hack /etc/init/ssh.conf I guess :)
But it is not possible - as in any linux os - change the ssh.conf ? I think it is also possible put the standard "user" and other users - if needed should be created from the terminal - as sudoers.
