Slackware 13.37 first boot


Just completed an install of Slackware 13.37 & on the first boot I get a promt for
a darkstar login. What do I enter there & then after that it is asking for a password. In the install I entered a root password.

Thanks,

Nelly53

Enter "root" and then your password.

If you need a user interface, type startx

I did enter root & the password I set up in the install but it would not accept it.

If nothing happens still, then at the darkstar login, just type "startx". The darkstar login in Slackware means your are already root I believe.

if you only have the root account then you might want to create a user account, i believe the command is,
Code:
adduser
