Hi folks,

I'm having a bit of trouble changing the root password on my persistent Live USB Backtrack 5 R2 (GNOME x32).
I have followed these instructions exactly:

root@bt:~# passwd Enter new UNIX password: {enter your new password here } Retype new UNIX password: {enter your new password again} passwd: password updated successfully root@bt:~#
Everything goes well in the terminal however, upon rebooting I get stuck at the boot screen with a looping error:

EXT2-fs (loop1): error: ext2_lookup: deleted inode referenced

I've installed it on a 16gb usb stick and reserved 8gb for persistent memory

Does anyone understand why this is happening.
