    Exclamation Change root password

    i was just curious if you can boot an open/freeBSD box into single mode and change the password like that of linux. I think it boots it to read only so i was wordering if any of you know if its possible.

    I guess it's possible, even if i haven't tried this yet. I promise you, when I'll reboot my openBSD fw, I'll try it.

    The RO is not unextricable. You can make it remount RW when needed. (man mount would be a great idea).
