Alright, so I bought a used Playstation 3 on Ebay and it came with Fedora Core 6 already installed on the system. I rebooted the playstation 3 and it brought me up to the usual localhost login screen but I can't login as root. Any suggestions ?

If you have a grub loader hit the "e" button on boot up and edit grub

add single to this line

title CentOS (2.6.18-8.1.3.el5)
root (hd1,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet single crashkernel=128M@16M
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5.img
savedefault
boot

save the change then hit "b" to boot

once booted

type in

# passwd
Enter new UNIX password:


If this doesn't work

try

#sudo passwd
