How did you set the password?

I got confused the first time (it *is* documented though!) because I just wrote the new password into the config.

But you need to run


to generate the hash. Cleartext won’t work!

I've also tried to create user with some password, but all fails. I've checked password in .config and it matches the one I've set from menuconfig. Have tried both git://openadk.org/git/openadk and snapshots.
