What is the default root password?

Postby hohenzolern » Wed Dec 27, 2006 1:21 pm

Hey guys,

What is the default root password so that I can change it without doing a rescue?

If I change the root password does it affect conary's ability to upgrade?

I ran into the problem that it did not prompt me to change the default password which is "password." However when I tried to login to the root account with password it did not take so do the following :

1) enter the command line console on the machine
2) login with admin and the password that you created for the admin account (done during the install)
3) type sudo passwd
4) it will then prompt you to enter a new password for root with the appropriate warnings.

You will now have access to the console and can ssh in. You should not have any problems upgrading if you have changed the root password.
