When I installed mandriva I got 1 window for a password that lets me login and be admin. This same window opens whenever I need to download anything. I cannot login, cannot access admin, I am stuck as a guest only.
I can load the disc again and go through install, but as I have done that 2 or 3 times and I keep returning to this very same problem I have just let it run as a guest.
It really sucks that I can't download the drivers and watch most of the vids on line. Some sites require their driver to access any info on their site and I cannot get on them either.
I enter my password and I get the window to enter my password again in a few seconds. I enter my password 2 or 3 times and I get an icon that says unknown error. I don't ever get invalid or incorrect password or anything that says I entered the wrong password. All I ever get is unknown error.
