I have just installed Mint 14 cinnamon 64 bit. I cannot login even though I know the user and password are correct.
I have installed it twice just in case i had mis-typed the password
I am not a newbie having started with slackware 3.4 and also now run ubuntu 12.04 on my other machine so i though ok login as root and change my user password.
No can do so is there a problem with the distro or is it someting else.
Obviously I cannot sudo or su as I cannot get to it.
Can I interrupt the boot process and start in single user mode?
I tried firing up the install disc, mounting the root partition and chrooting but that doesn't work either.
