OM Neo, 2 months old, and using a Debian stable desktop to access the  

Some may remember my 'problem' accessing my OM phone after I edited  
the /etc/network/interface file.

I finally got around to get the MicroSD card working. I can  
succesfully boot from the SD card, as per wiki instructions

When I folowed the wiki, I made changes to the /etc/network/interfacec  
card as well, making it appear on my LAN.

I can succesfully ping the phone (yeah), but when I attempt to ssh  
into the phone;

ssh root at

I keep getting asked for a password. After 2 times hitting the  
<return> key, I get this error message;

ssh root at
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be  
RSA key fingerprint is 75:c6:91:b7:60:a9:16:b1:19:ed:5a:c7:2f:d3:39:c4.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

root at's password:

and I get brought back to the shell

I've looked at the MicroSD card, when I have in installed in a card  
reader, and the /etc/passwd file shows no password.

Not sure what I am missing.

Thanks for any help in finally getting my phone running.
