    Default Re: Default username and password (root password)

    I unchecked "lock screen" in the power management settings then did 3 hours of scripting and closed my lid. Now I cant log back in to save the work to another drive. If I turn it off I lose everything. Is there another way to get in there?

    You can try to switch to an other console and see if that helps (alt+f2).

    hai
    at the login prompt
    type it
    login:root
    password:toor

    then it logs into root then type stratx and enter
    then it opens graphical screen.

    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,
