This sounds like a Linux/Unix prompt for a user name and password. See this forum for more information:

I set shutdown time at 10 pm by using crontab but server shutdown at 1800 or 6 pm . I am using LINUX CentOS


Hi
Try using ttps://launchpad.net/gpoweroff also the other way to set auto shut down is

Also another way is

A simpler way is to add the appropriate shutdown command to the /etc/profile file (as root):
Open a terminal window and su to root:
[user@localhost ~]$ su
Password: (enter root password here)

This example will open /etc/profile in the kate text editor:
[root@localhost user] # kate /etc/profile
Add the following command to the end of the file:
shutdown -h hh:mm
Replace hh:mm with the time at which you want the computer to shutdown automatically each day
The -h option tells shutdown to turn the
computer off (halt).
For more information on the shutdown
command open a terminal window and enter:
man shutdown
Remember, the man command is your friend.
With it you can get information on nearly
any command available in your Linux system

Let me know if this helps

When you turn the macbook on it asks for a username and password and i recently changed it and didnt write it down is there anyway of getting passed it


Did you choose a security question? (helps recover password)

OR Try This (taken from another forum)

"Try this
Although there's no real way to recover a lost root password, you can change the root password even if you do not know the current one. You must have physical access to the machine in order to accomplish this task.

Click Restart at the login window
While the computer is restarting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window.
This boots the computer into single user mode.

At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw //sbin/SystemStarter

You will then see various services starting up.

When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd root

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

After entering the new password, type:
reboot

At the login window, enter username root wih the new password.

Once you are connected, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your normal user's password, or create a new user account."

Try using no password by leaving it blank. If that does not work then boot from your OSX install disk and reset the password from the menubar.

Rtl 8139D drivers for Red Hat 5 enterprise edition


I have no choice and open terminal then type “init 0′ (shutdown) :D. Then switch back to Windows XP to find the type of driver I need to install on Linux RHEL 5 and find solution over the internet. Noticed that I am using Realtek RTL8139/810x for NIC on Windows. After that, quickly go to the internet to find “how to install Realtek RTL8139/810x on Linux RHEL 5“. Then, I found that many crappy thing and **** suggestion over the forum. I read almost all Linux forum and follow all the sugesstion included to use ndiswrapper to install that Realtek NIC driver. But it doesn’t work on my machine. Yes I confess that I am new in this matter and perhaps ndiswrapper is too advanced for me.
Then, I have decided to try and error. I go to Realtek official website to see if I can get the specific driver for Linux. Found that:
RTL8100B(L)/RTL8100C(L)/RTL8101L/RTL8139C(L)
RTL8139C(L)+/RTL8139D(L)/RTL8100(L)
RTL8130/RTL8139B(L)
all at the same download page. Then I made I my own conclusion that, Realtek8100 or Realtek8101 can be use as well since I can’t find any RTL8139 driver for linux over the internet. Too not wasting your time to read my crappy story, then download this driver over HERE. DOWNLOAD DRIVER HERE, before that make sure you login as root. After download complete, just write the following command on your terminal:
[root@localhost ~]# cd Desktop (i put the file on Desktop)
[root@localhost Desktop]# tar xvvf r8101-1.001.00.tar.bz2
.
.
[root@localhost Desktop]# cd r8101-1.001.00
[root@localhost r8101-1.001.00]# make clean modules
.
.
.
[root@localhost r8101-1.001.00]# make install
.
.
[root@localhost r8101-1.001.00]# depmod -a
[root@localhost r8101-1.001.00]# insmod ./src/r8101.ko
[root@localhost r8101-1.001.00]# lsmod | grep r8101
r8101 28688 0 <—if this appear, then you’ve installed the driver successfully:)
Then check if your ip have configured correctly or not
[root@localhost r8101-1.001.00]# ifconfig -a
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1C:25:4D:9A:0A
XXXXX XXXX MTU:1500 Metric:1

RX packets:1611 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

RX bytes:4526976 (4.3 MiB) TX bytes:4526976 (4.3 MiB)
sit0 Link encap:IPv6-in-IPv4
NOARP MTU:1480 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Since you can see the ethX which X is 0,1,2,3 (mine is eth0)…. instead of just lo and sit0, then its working now. NIC driver has been installed successfully.
Finally, on your terminal type:
[root@localhost ~]# system-config-network

You can see on hardware tab there are Realtek Semiconductor with status ok. Then, move to Devices tab, and click New > Ethernet connection > Forward > Choose REaltek Semiconductor…. > Forward > then up to you whether want to set DHCP or set static IP.
Now you can open Firefox or Konqueror and start browsing internet happily:)
[p/s] If check again on your terminal with ifconfig -a it should return your local ip address under the eth0 which is 192.168.1.* ; * is 2-255
