1.5 administrator password
February 07, 2008 10:58PM
I have downloaded the elive 1.5 unstable live iso and booted to it. For an unstable release, it is pretty stable. But, I cannot enter the password for configuring the network. I tried 'elive' and many others and it always says it is invalid.

Please help.

Type "su" in a terminal, and use the "network-admin" command to config your network.

Thanks so much. I just figured that out. I am now going to try out several features. Thanks so much.

So, what is wrong with the root password login?

There is no root password, I think.

Entering no password and just clicking ok does not work. I agree there does not seem to be a root password, but the password entry dialog does not work. Any ideas?

type in eterm:


users-admin (might be user-admin)

Then proceed to change the root and elive live cd user passwords.
