After freezing while starting xmms, the disk was corrupted, generating alot of nasty errors on boot. After failing to start opie, it still gives me a shell, but I can't login. Are there any defaults for usernames or passwords? I flashed with hentges rom and opie. I'd like to see if fsck can rescue me out of this one, before just reflashing.. Thanks

Username "root", no password. If that doesn't work, your system is dead ph34r.gif

Can altboot truly boot to a USB storage device through USB host that has a bootable OS on it? That could be a data-life-saver for some.

With kernel 2.4 it can yes. For kernel 2.6 I'd have to work out the module depedencies first, but yeah, that's possible.

With altboot installed you can also boot into init=/bin/sh and manually repair a damaged system (or rescue files).

Thanks... tried root, no password, and it didn't work. I guess nothing left to do but reflash then. Thanks for a great ROM, btw.. Works out nicely.. I think I may try to altboot with gpe this time as well

Very neat. Thanks for the info.
I've wondered under pdaXrom and now OZ... what is the proper way to run a file system check under OZ? Or is that necessary?
