I tried doing the password reset but, when i went to enter in the new password it would not let me type. i went into the root section entered passwd and then my user-name and it went into the aria where it allows you to reset it and it would not let me type. i tried multiple times still with no luck.

If you are looking for some password feedback as you will get in windows like dots ( . ) or astric ( *) symobols then ,you dont get here. but no problem you can just type the password what you want and then continue.

no need to wait for will automatically recorded.
