Logging into trisquel - LXF 171

Postby Mr. Flibble » Sun May 12, 2013 9:21 pm

Im probably missing something easy here , but I cant seem to log into the live live distro from the cd.
I seem to only have an option for "other" user.
After I click on that , I have tried entering root/root and guest/guest but neither let me log in

what am I missing?

The system should log you in automatically with no need to enter a username or password. However, there seems to be a problem affecting a few people where this doesn't work. At the moment, we're not sure exactly what's causing it and we haven't been able to replicate it here.

It's possible that there are a few faulty discs. The MD5sum of the disc I have that works is 1c9747758906617adf73a6b266f325f1 . If yours is different, contact discsupport@futurenet.com, they'll be able to send you a new disc.

It's also possible that there is a problem with some hardware configurations. If you have another computer available, could you try it on that and let me know if it works please?
