It gets to be a *REAL* hassle when the WLAN is DOA! On ubuntu, it was a breeze.

Cannot boot into Recovery Mode

Postby snah » Thu Jun 05, 2014 6:45 pm

Hi,
Attempting to do Recovery Mode maintenance FAILS, asking for a root password.

Q1: What is the default root password for LMDE, or doesn't one exist?

Q2: Can someone provide a reference to the LMDE docs?

thx
snah
