What is the Debian Login & Password
« 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,  :)

You'll need to supply some more information. What build are you using?

The default user/password are root/password

You can see it there https://www.olimex.com/wiki/Prebuilt_SD_card_images_running_debian

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').

this is probably your problem please find one normal keyboard just to test if this is the issue

@ 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
