Title: What is the Debian Login & Password
Post by: zippper4 on March 12, 2013, 10:13:00 PM
Hello,

Sorry to ask this but i'm completely a noob in Linux, and i wanted to know if someone can tell me how to pass the black screen when it's written ;

"Debian GNU/Linux Wheezy/sid debian tty1
 
 debian login:_    <--- ?
 password:_        <--- ?
"

Because i have read that it must be: root and root , but it doesn't work at all for me.

Thank you for reading !
Best regards,  :)

No root and root but

debian login: root
 password: password

My 2 cents

are you using a qwerty or an azerty keyboard? root/password should work but if you are on a azerty keyboard, your keyboard isn't configured right, then you should try root/pqsszord ('a' is on the 'q' and 'w' is on the 'z').

I didn't know Azrty keyboards even exist :)
this is probably your problem please find one normal keyboard just to test if this is the issue

hey hey, don't shoot at my keyboard ... Belgian and French keyboards (and some others) happens to be azerty  :)

@ zipper: please try all in lower key, no caps.

You could change /etc/passwd

Or login via USB COM port

May be easiest to get a new keyboard

apparently I corrupted the SD and that is why I was not able to long in
I paid for another SD, since I was not having luck making and SD from an image.
the new SD let me login.
