Harddrive full - no access!

Hi sorry if this has been asked before...I couldn't find it using search. A while ago I setup a headless file server using an old xbox and gentoox. No problems. But now I can't access the xbox anymore. No SSH no nothing (I think it doesn't even complete the boot cycle) and I suspect it's because the...

Boot up Resctoox, mount your Gentoox installation, chroot to it and then run `passwd`. Security - dont let other people use your box. Dont even bother trying to recover your installation, just start again. The chances that the guy installed a rootkit are rather high :/ Geez...ok thanks for the tip

Hacked?! need to reset my root pw

Hey guys, Uhm, I feel kind of embarassed asking this question. I think somebody hacked my xbox server and changed my root pw. There's nothing useful on it yet (well some stuff). How do I reset my gentoox password. And do you guys have any specific tips or pointers on security? Thanks in advance, Cye

Ok...
But the rest of my question? That last bit was more of a (lazy) afterthought
Is it possible to do what I proposed?

I want to use the drive to store large downloads (torrent, usenet etc.) and share the drive with XP machines thru samba. This way I don't have to go through all the trouble of c...

I use nzbperl, it's great! It automatically scans a certain folder for nzb files, and automatically starts downloading if it finds one. I put up a page to uplaod files (apache), and nzbperl checks this folder for nzb files. So now I can download all my series and movies from wherever I am! It runs i...

I'm slowly getting a hang of this...
In the make config, I had to disable X (e.g. -X)...That stopped it from compiling the xfree dependancy! I thought I already did that (I followed nobspangles tut!); guess I forgot...
Oh well it's emerging now...

Travante, dude, you WILL NOT believe it! But it actually worked!!! However before all this I reinstalled gentoox, and chose the 720p hdtv option. And in my dashboard I disabled all but 720p. I did all this by accident...however I didn't have an image in xbmc...which was weird cause I remebered xbmc ...
