Mepis login


WHen I am booting Mepis from CD, during installation, they ask for a login and password. What is this login? I downloaded the free version SimplyMEPIS 3.3.1 from mepis.org, so I didn't purchase this. If you could help me, it would be very helpful.

username: demo
password: demo

the root password is 'root' but you don't want to use it to login

No, it's nota limited demo version. It is fully functional to install. There will be an icon on y our desktop saying 'Install me'.

However you can run it from the cd as root or demo.

If I decide to install Mepis on my system, and go for the root, is the username root and password root?

Log in as DEMO, with Demo password in any case...
if you decide to install Mepis on Hard Disk or do anything for which the Root password is required while you are logged in as normal user (Demo in this case), there will be a Pop up asking you for the root password...
