Exclamation SuSE Login Problem.


I just installed SuSE with no problems. Once install finished it asked if i wanted to start YaST, which in the hurry i was to start the os i clicked no. Once it brought up the logon screen i tried logging in. Since i had not created a user it said invalid login. I first left the fields blank, and it said Invalid Login. then i tried logging on as root, and it said the same. I have tried many times to log on and nothing has worked. Please help!

Put the first install cd (or dvd) in the drive and boot up. In the menu, you have a Repair option. Try that to see if you can fix the problem. Otherwise, you may have to re-install (don't be in such a hurry this time).

You need to enter your user name in the first line, and the password in the second.

The starting YaST question has to do with downloading the updates from the repository on the Internet, so answering no wasn't a problem. You can check for updates later when you log in.

You said that when you logged in you left the fields blank. The only fields are the Username and Password. And you never said that you hadn't added a user.

In the session type, you can try the Administrative Session. You should be able to log in as root then. Another thing to try is logging in a root in one of the virtual terminals. (i.e. [CTRL-ALT-F2]) You can also run yast in the terminal and add new users.

Adding at least one user is part of the setup. If you can log in as a normal user, you will have YaST in the menu. Then after entering the root password you can perform whatever administrative functions you want to do.
