localhost login


just finished installing fc6 on my laptop, when i start it up, it goes [OK] through everything and then i get a:

Fedora Core release 6 (Zod)
Kernel 2.6.18-1.1798fc6 on an i686

localhost login:


it didnt even fucking give/ask me to make a username, and the root password that i gave during installation does not work. this is BS. not everyone's a god damn genius.

genius? good grief... you've clearly forgotten your root password. if you enter the password you gave, you will get in. it's not rocket surgery...

and please do not swear here, elsewhere say what you want, but not on our forums.
