LiveUsb root password

Postby corsair620 on Wed May 30, 2012 3:22 pm

Good afternoon to all,

I've been a sporadic user of Ubuntu for some time now, which I loved, and recently has made me the itch to return Linux.

Anyway, I downloaded the distro "Linux Mint" Debian "- 201204 MATE / Cinnamon 32-bit" and put it in a flash drive as a LiveUSB. The problem is that when I access the hard drive to view files tells me "Authentication is required to mount the device" and asks me the password for root.

I tried to leave it blank, admin, root, toor, all the usual but nothing. The user that I get by default is Mint.

Someone can help me with the default password that comes in the distro to use as a LiveUsb??

Necessarily have to install to create the user with your password??

The distro I really like and I always like to wear it as a LiveUsb, but would need to know how to browse files on your hard disk without asking me or know the root password which is the default. I've been looking through the forum and have not seen anything.

Thank you very much for your help and greetings to all.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
