Step 1 – Switch to user ‘tech’ and enter ‘reaver’ without quotes as password at login
Step 2 – Type the commands in terminal logged in as user ‘tech’ …
sudo passwd root
Where it says Enter new UNIX password, just type in whatever new password you wish.
Re-enter it again at the prompt.
It should now say “Password updated successfully”
sudo passwd -u root
Hit Enter. Now it says “Password expiry information changed.”
OK, now log out and switch to user root and log in with your new password. Under root, you can now open up Synaptic Package Manager and all the other cool root stuff. You can also do this command in the ‘tech’ user terminal to change the password for all the accounts including the default user where the ReaverPRO GUI opens up.
I still don’t know how to do a proper install of ReaverPRO unfortunately. Here’s hoping another fellow Top Hat member or R4V3N himself can share how to go all the way with this install. Here are some screenshots. This is my first “tutorial” type of post, so please forgive the shabbiness.
