Solution for Unknown Root Password [LiveCD]

Post by Harness »

Hey guys,

After a few hours of interwebs searching and thinking, I've found a way to get by this password issue. Very simple in the end, here's what I did:

Control + Alt + F1, then...

Code: Select all

su
passwd root
*Asks for Password and Confirmation*
Then Control + Alt + F7, open up a terminal and...

Code: Select all

su
*password*
cd /usr/bin
./live-installer
And the installer should start without issue or errors. Did for me anyhow. Hope this helps somebody, more than "LOLUSENETBOOTIN" cuz that didn't work for me.

Harness.
