What is the default admin password for LMDE?

What is the default admin password for LMDE? I have explained in detail why I need this in the Installation & Boot forums, so I don't need to reiterate it here.

Thanks in advance.
I am frequently right and never in doubt.

Hi,

There isn't a root password on the live cd or live usb. Normally, I just work around such issues by opening a terminal and typing the following:
Code: Select all
sudo su
passwd root
(enter passwd)
(enter passwd again to verify)
exit
exit

Done. Run installer and use the newly created root passwd to get the installer to run.
