I am posting this here for everyone to know 

 

Anybody can tell us the ROOT password for this BSP ?

L2.6.35_MX53_ER_1101_IMAGE

Linux Binary Demo Files 2011.01.
Size (K): 946416 Format: gz Rev #: 2011.01 Modified: 3/9/2011

  

and maybe confirm the same for this new BSP at the same time.

L2.6.35_MX53_ER_1103_IMAGE

Linux Binary Demo Files 2011.03 Release.
Size (K): 227202 Format: gz Rev #: 2011.03 Modified: 4/15/2011

Thanks

François Anderson

@Claude:

 

SD-Card  with my i.MX53 QSB is having the same number as yours (L2.6.35_11.01ER_77347A).  I think you need to enter lucid only. If I have just installed updates on my QSB and it works fine.

Just my 2-cents worth...

Ubantu, by default, does not sets up root user when setting up. So if you tried to login root, naturally it will reject, independent of password you use.

You just use sudo to perform root priviledged operation. I was able to login lucid / lucid for both LCD and the console.

Since I deal with a few other systems (and I am not sitting in front of 53QSB right now) perhaps I am confused but I thought sudo (root priviledged command) with password lucid worked.

- Using the original "L2.6.35_11.01ER_77347A" micro
  SD-Card coming with the i.MX53 QSB, I checked for the
  password to use, when issuing a "su" command, and this
  is not "lucid".
  I also checked for empty password (just hit [Enter] key), and
  it does not work.

- Is the micro SD-Card coming with your i.MX53 QSB as the same
  number as mine (L2.6.35_11.01ER_77347A)?


Regards,
Claude

Another note. If your user has sudo privelidege. Then you can do "sudo su" Then you are working as the superuser. At that point of course you could issue the "passwd" command - as in the post above. This will work where just "su" does not. (Since you don't have the root password, but do have sudo priveledges) Ubuntu does this by default on their images to help prevent people from running as root unnecessarily.

- Unfortunately, the root password is not "blank" on the i.MX53 QSB
  L2.6.35_MX53_ER_1101_IMAGE BSP.

- I tried the "sudo passwd root" command, and it works fine with
  the i.MX53 QSB L2.6.35_MX53_ER_1101_IMAGE BSP.


Thank you for this "unknown root password" workaround.

I haven't put the Freescale Linux BSP on the board, but on previous BSPs for other parts, the root password has been usually blank, so I would try that.

 

The lucid username/password combination is for the Ubuntu image. I'm not sure what the root password there is, but the lucid user has full sudo access, so you can do a sudo passwd root and change it.

From i.MX53_START_Linux_DemoImage_Readme.pdf:

Log in as lucid (not root), the password is lucid.

 

I have not tested L2.6.35_MX53_ER_1103_IMAGE yet but it might be the same.
