Weirdo Terminal Problem

Postby chondromalasia on Tue Jun 17, 2008 12:42 am

So, I am in the terminal, and when I am asked for my root password, I try to type it in, however when I type, nothing comes up. There's the black box and everything, its just that when I type, only while it is asking for my password, that it won't accept any new characters.

It just isn't shown. Type your password and hit enter.
