I've seen several threads about missing login information, all of which proposed answers that would not work for me for some reason.

I'm running Backtrack5 32Bit KDE version on an external Hard Drive. When I boot from it, I start backtrack, and after a few seconds I am prompted for a username and password. This is all shown on a light blue screen, if I click on "Log in from console" it says I am already logged in, when I see this I try "startx" after which the screen goes black, a "BT5 Loading" screen is shown with what appears to be chinese letters, after which I am sent back to the same console. (Not the light blue login, just a prompt.)

I have tried all of the rm commands shown in other threads.

I tried to log in with root / toor and it didn't succeed. Anyone?
