    Default user name/password

    I recently bought a laptop with SUSE installed. Everything was working fine, but the last time I tried to start it, it would not recognize username/password.

    I must have changed something without realizing it... now how can I get back into SUSE?

    Thanks,

    Jos

    Caps-lock on?

    Num-lock on? Often, inadvertantly turning numlock on in a laptop can cause
    the numlock mode to be enabled at boot, which shifts the uio-jkl-mn. keys
    into the numeric keypad layout. This has bitten me many times.

    Well, no number lock or anything, but signing in as "root" did it.

    Many thanks.
