I just installed suse 10.1. After doing the online patch updates, it rebooted and stopped at the log in screen. I had selected a root password to use, but I did not have the opportunity during the setup to select a user name and password. Is there a default I can use?
When the pc boots up, I am presented with the graphical login screen. I typed ctrl-alt-f1 and went to a text screen. It asked me for a username. I never got to the point in the install where I was asked to select a username, only to select a root password. I tried every kind of username I could think of with the root password. Nothing worked. Is it still possible to log in as root? Also, this is a dual boot box. I first instlled xp on it using half the hd space and installed suse linux on the remainder. Can the install be repaired without damaging the xp partition because the grub loader now handles booting?
Ok, I guess I was brain dead. I typed root, then the root password and was able to create the user and user password. Thanks for the help. I will keep these notes in a safe place in the event I get stuck again. And I will check to make sure yast is working fine.
