Problem with user name / password after installing SUSE Linux 10


In Dutch: (Nederlands).
Beste lezer. Op mijn oude desktop PC staat XP Home Edition 2002-SP3. 2,67 GHz, 1 GB, HD= 40GB+12GB+3GB.
Na berichten dat XP stopt met updates, ben ik me gaan verdiepen in Linux software, via boeken van de bibliotheek. In 1 boek zat een CD van SUSE Linux 10.
Wel een beetje oud,maar leuk om te proberen.
Installatie snoepte wel de helft van de C schijf op, maar ja.... Installatie ging goed, tot het moment van updaten. Foutmelding van Linux server (oid).
Daarna niets meer met Suse linux 10 te bereiken, omdat mijn gebruikersnaam en paswoord niet geaccepteerd worden. Blijkbaar kan ik Linux SUSE 10 niet zomaar meer van de C schijf verwijderen. Ik zie het nergens staan.
Kan ik wat aan die gebruikersnaam/paswoord problemen doen, of moet ik een nieuwer programma, zoals UBUNTU 13.04 hier overheen installeren. Maar dan zal wel weer een paswoord etc. gevraagd gaan worden....
De Windows XP wil ik wel blijven gebruiken.
Gaarne advies, wat te doen.

SUSE 10 is EOL. You should use a newer version.

Wel Jaap,

Assuming that you can still boot your linux, just boot into single user mode and change the password for the root user. That should do the trick.

Problem with user name / password after installing SUSE Linux 10

Dear reader. There is not any Dutch desponce possible?
So, I try in MY English...

On my old desktop PC, 2.67GHz, 1GB, HD=40GB, XP Home edit.2002-SP3 is updating next year not anymore possible. After that news I was interrested in Linux software, via books in the library. In 1 book was a
CD with SUSE Linux 10. Basic course. It was a little bit old, but I wanted to try.
Installation went well, but it took half of my C drive harddisk...
After installing SUSE LINUX 10, updating was into progress. But suddenly a message apear: server ERROR !!!
After that: Suse did nothing anymore than asking for username and password. I gave, but every time refused to enter.
I found out that I could not remove the Linux SUSe from my PC. I can not find how to do that.
What can I do to enter the SUSE Linux? My username and password are not working anymore.
Can I install a newer version of Linux, such as UBUNTU13.04 over the SUSE 10? Without using a login code?
I still want to use the XP program.
What is your advice?

You can install a different Linux and it will replace SUSE. You might like PCLinuxOS:

You see that they speak Dutch!

unless you MUST 100% MUST use the dead and unsupported
SUSE 10.0 went End of life back in November 30st 2007
SUSE 10.1 went End of life back in May 31st 2008
SUSE 10.2 went End of life back in November 30th 2008
SUSE 10.3 went End of life back in October 31st 2009

or is this the NOT free SELS 10
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10

Initial release, 2006-06-17
SP1, 2007-06-18
SP2, 2008-05-19

if you NEED the commercial NOT FREE SUSE Enterprise Linux Server / Desktop
install the current SELS 11 sp3

or the free OpenSUSE 13.1
