changed password

Asked by Mirko Dokic on 2009-09-24

Changed the password with "ecryptfs-rewrap-passphrase ~/.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphase". Now the problem is when I should have entered the new password I accidentally added 1-2 random characters at the end. Now I don't know what the real password is. Is there some way to recover or change the password? I still have the hash which the setup gave me in case I needed to recover files from the container.

Using Jaunty Jackalope.

Problem solved. All I had to do was to boot, change to console and "cd ~/ecryptfs", type "ecryptfs-wrap-passphrase wrapped-passphrase", then type the hash/key which I got during the installation and then the login password. Restart, mounts without problems.
