    Default Default username and password (root password)

    Hello,
    I just booted up a BT5 x64 on my laptop, so I am at the KDE login prompt, it is asking for a username and a password.
    I tried the well known root/toor but didn‘t succeded. Also tried root/(blank) but that isn‘t it either.
    So if anyone can just post the correct username/password combo I would be really grateful.

    Thanks,
    DOMy

    I'm guessing you have it installed then ?
    When booting from USB drive/DVD default password is displayed just before you can type startx (for instance). Did you check that ? Anyway, I believe it should be root/toor...
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    It didn‘t start with the default option, so I started it by choosing Debug mode, after that it booted automatically into X not giving me the chance to observe any comments in the console :S

    So no, I don‘t have it installed...

    Anyhow there was a txt attached to the iso, maybe the pwd is written in that will check on this later when I got home.

    Ι got the same issue on a vm. Normal mode cant get X to start, so i tried debug mode which got me with X up and kdm asking for password.
    'toor' doesnt seem to work.

    Default

    I opened a new terminal session on a second screen with ALT-F2 and changed the password for the user root. I added also a new User to the system. Login works now
    and i can see the KDE Loading Screen but fall back to login screen every time. So also no success from my side.

    Ok. I have it!
    Boot in the normal Mode and let startx fail, then check this Post here -> http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...x-problem.html

    Works for me.

    Try this:

    1) At the BackTrack boot menu, choose "Debug mode" (do not hit enter).
    2) press tab while the "BackTrack Debug" menu option is selected.
    3) Edit the boot parameter, and add a "splash" value.

    The line should look similar to this:

    Code:
    /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz text splash --
    See if this helps. Please report back to this thread.

    Adding splash made the Debug option equal with the Default option, so on my machine it just simply didn't boot in...black screen.
