Smile Password


Hello, I have re-configured the two hard drives on my desktop, that formerly ran XP. I have a Ubuntu 10.10 dvd distro. It asks for a Username, and a Password. I created a username, is there a default Password I can use, to make this installation, continue, please?

I believe it simply asks for a password of your choosing.

When you create a new user it is obvious that a password has to be attached to this user! If your system can be accessed via the WEB and you have open ports to it, i suggest to use a strong password!

For example: ManNyM@N05$

Welcome to LinuxQuestions

Ubuntu 10.10 support officially ended on 12 April 2012. I suggest installing the current version 13.10. As stated the name and password is of your own choosing.

There is no default password (except for admin for the first time only after installation). You need to set a password. If you don't want that, then you can create a user with -d flag, which will suppress the requirement of any password. Again, this is highly not recommended way of setting Users.
