    a little password problem

    k so this is prolly in the wrong section, i did look around first and did a search for the only thing i could come up with, password, the stuff i was doing had the word Repository in it so i posted here, now the problem.

    i wanna do this: http://ubuntuguide.org/#extrarepositories

    but when i get asked for the passwd i cant type, nothing on keyboard works but the enter key, how do i fix that???

    only thing i done after installation is this: http://ubuntuguide.org/#disableinteractiveeditinggrub

    and not even all of it since i couldnt type passwd
    Code:
     $ grub
    
    grub> md5crypt
    Password: ****** (ubuntu)
    Encrypted: $1$ZWnke0$1fzDBVjUcT1Mpdd4u/T961 (encrypted password)
    
    grub> quit
    i did that part but couldnt do next cos of passwd problem

    now i am all new to any distro of linux at all, first time i tried today so ive been a linux user for about 3 hours.

    hope someone can help me with this problem

    and sorry to the mod who prolly had to move this thread

    Re: a little password problem

    The password you type after the sudo commands is the password for the account you created during installation. You won't see any feedback on the screen that you are typing anything until you press the enter key.
