I have been away from editing stuff on my mybook but have come back to it recently. But now I can't seem to add a user and then amend its password. When I use the passwd command for example passwd andy, I get a prompt asking for old password and what ever I put in here is not accepted, I have been over it many times and am sure I am putting in the right password. For example I can login as root change the password for andy, then login as andy and a. I dont get prompted for a password and secondly when I try to change the password it wont accept my old password. Anyone know what might be going on? I have checked the Password file, and shadow file and the user information is in there?
