For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Unattended Install-root password

Posted by anil (anil), 27 November 2007
Hi Friends,
I have created a script for unattended install. There is a patch at the end of the script to be installed. This patch requires user to type in username root and its password and confirm the password. Is there a way I can do it or what is best way of doing it. If I pass the password as argument to script (prefered way as it will not save password in file), still how do I get in script so when it prompts it will automatically assign root and its password.

Any help/support appreciated.

Cheers
Anil

Passwording is usually designed to be difficult to automate for security reasons (antohack program prevention for example) and uses /dev/tty rather than stdin.  The bast way around it is to use expect.
