    Default Boot Suse 11.1 Live CD in text mode - need login & password

    Hi All,

    Hope this is an easy question.
    I have installed 11.1 live CD using TEXT install option - as I have an ancient machine and it does not seem to like these new fangled graphics.

    I get to the login screen

    localhost login:

    And I have no idea what the [root] or account login is.

    I have tried

    linux/linux
    root/linux
    root/[enter]
    [enter]/[enter]
    guest/[enter]
    suse/[enter]
    suse/linux

    nothing works.
    I have had a trawl about and been unable to find what I thought would be an obvious and common issue - with an answer.

    Anyone know what the SuSe 11.1 LIVE CD default [root] login / password is....?!

    to login type:
    root

    hit enter

    that's it

    If you need to get a graphical display you may need to switch to vesa by entering this:
    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
    (that's a zero not a letter)

    then type:
    startx

    Hi,

    As I wrote in my original mail,

    I tried the ID 'root' and just pressing enter and it would not accept this....?

    I agree with caf4926. There is something wrong with your install.
