Thread: 11.1 KDE Live CD Password

    Default 11.1 KDE Live CD Password

    I select the top option on the initial screen and choose OpenSuse 11.1 KDE Live, it then boots to a login screen and says on the left;
    Live CD User
    linux

    I enter linux as the username but don't know what the password is, I've tried linux, opensuse, Novell, user, everything I can think of. Nothing works, just keeps bringing me back to the login screen. I've checked my md5 and it checks out.

    The instructions said that I should be going straight to the desktop and didn't say anything about logging in.

    Thanks,

    Is this a black screen with a text login? It should not be like that, it should boot to the desktop without requiring a login. You may need to experiment with boot options to get the GUI to come up. Perhaps if you describe your hardware, especially the video card, somebody might be able to suggest the right options.

    It's not a black screen, it looks like a perfectly normal opensuse login screen with a space for username and password and on the left a box that says "KDE Live CD User" and underneath that it says "linux" When I click on that it puts the word linux in the username box and advances to the password box. I just don't know what the password is.

    That still shouldn't happen, it should take you to the desktop directly. Something failed during the startup. Unfortunately I only know what a successful LiveCD boot looks like, not how to fix this one. How much RAM do you have by the way?

    Any chance of testing it on a machine with more RAM? I think the recommended is 1GB. Although I could swear I had it working on a machine with less than 1GB. Or you could just install it, the installer will work in 512MB, less than the LiveCD.

    I have 3.5GB Ram available on my system, core2duo - using the 64-bit KDE liveCD.

    I get a green login screen.

    Have you tried without a password?

    I know the livecd's shouldn't even have a password. So try logging in as linux with no password. If that doesn't work then try logging in as root with no password.

    Remember to NEVER LOGIN AS ROOT after installation, but to get the live-cd to work so that you can install openSUSE it's alright.

    Good Luck,

    I confess - I had a pencil and paper out for a while.

    I tried nothing, just wait for 30 seconds for an autologin
    I tried 'enter'
    then I tried 'linux' and 'linux,linux'
    I tried 'root' and 'root, root'
    I tried 'user' and 'user, user'

    Then I rebooted and searched for ideas - and didn't find anything new. I think it's just SuSe isn't so good with hardware as I'd hoped - very disappointing. I had very minor issues with Ubuntu 7.04 over a year ago, and no issues from 7.10 through to 9.04 now - and now it's nice because I can boot the disk, and install straight to USB which will boot on any computer.

    I'd really be interested to try SuSe, but this is a killer ! !

    Well, please don't judge Suse that fast, ok?
    I had Live-CDs before and I have to admit that I've had problems with passes too (luckiliy not OpenSuse though).

    Please also try the following:
    user: root
    Password: toor
    Good luck!
