I'm 100% a newbie for Linux
I download the Puppy Linux for a bootable usb. I had everything working fine until I log off and save the file. Now when I load Puppy Linux it ask for a password, I don't even know the password. Also it won't let me type in any kind of password. I try using the Puppy Linux boot menu, but nothing work.
Is there any easy way to fix this? Is there anyway to reset Puppy Linux?
I try typing in puppy pfix=ram but it did't work. When I type it in and hit enter, this what happen next.
pup-420.sfs not found. Dropping out initial - ram disk console .....
/bin/Sh:can't access tty: Job control turn off #
If I would to download Puppy Linux again and put it on a brand new USB, would that fix the prbolem? Or will it still ask me for the same password?
I format the usb and re-download Puppy linux, but the same problem happen.
Thank you for the help.
