So here's my problem:
After installing, I booted into normal mode, and all I saw was my cursor and a black screen. I DID get a window asking me if I wanted to use a root password, and I chose no.
The black screen thing happened in the LiveCD too. I solved this problem by entering recovery mode and removing compiz-core, and compiz, because apparently they don't like my graphics card.
Back to the installation, as I said, I chose "no" when it asked if I wanted a root password. I shutdown, and went to recovery mode to try and remove compiz/compiz-core, but to my surprise, it demands that I have a root password before I get into the console.
Now I have no way of getting into LinuxMint because I can't remove compiz/compiz-core, and no way of removing compiz/compiz-core because I have no root password.
Is there ANYTHING I can do?
EDIT: I'd just like to say, I DID try the password I set during installation. No good.
