    Changing password in Developer mode.

    I have an issue with developer mode on my C-710. I successfully got the machine into developer mode, but I have had a problem setting a password on it.
    (Please bear with me, I don't have the machine in front of me, so this is from memory, if more details are needed, I'll update later)

    I can log in as chronos with no password.

    There is a notice on entering the tty on how to change the password, (something like setdevelpasswd) but my machine doesn't have the command on it.

    Running "sudo passwd" gives me an error along the lines of "failed due to token (something)" I'll provide the exact message later if needed.

    Any ideas on how to either replace the Google-supplied password command, and/or just getting passwd to change the password?

    Thanks,
    --murph

    Never mind. I found it, the command did exist, but was not in the path, and when I did a find for it early on, I must have made a typo and not found it.
