Install LMDE Using LiveUSB

Postby Majorix » Thu Feb 23, 2012 6:51 pm

So I just downloaded the LMDE and used Windows to setup a LiveUSB.

The problem is, once I boot into LMDE I see no sign of "Install LMDE" or anything similar. When I try running

Code: Select all

live-installer
it loads upto some point and says there were problems with the permission. So instead I run

Code: Select all

sudo live-installer
it asks me for a root pass, and for the life of me I can't figure out what it can be. Tried numerous options like "root", "mint", "pass", "admin", ... None works.

What can be the problem? What is the root password?

How did you create the LiveUSB? I use unetbootin and have never had it fail to create a usable USB.
