I recently purchased a Gumstix Verdex XL6P to be used in a prototype for the Navy. I connected it to a PC and was communicating to it through HyperTerminal. Everything was going well. Then I had to cycle the power and it boots to the login. I enter root for user (which had previously worked fine) and now it comes back with the error 'no valid shadow password'. I have no idea what the problem is from or how to fix it. Please help!
