Evening all, like the title implies I’ve just installed Ubuntu and I’m having some grief. I’m running 32 bit XP Pro and decided I wanted to try it out so downloaded the 64bit (running an E8400) installer 9.04 iso, mounted on Daemon tools and ran it without a hitch.
The installer asks for a username and password and will not allow me to leave it blank so I entered one all in lower case. After the reboot and when it loads into Ubuntu it comes to the password box on the GUI and simply says the username and password is incorrect. After some choice words I decided to reinstall and try again, paying extra attention to the username and password. Same thing again, I don’t get it!
I don’t really know anything about Ubuntu, and would like to get familiar with the OS, but this simple problem is driving me nuts! Any help would be appreciated.
Update: Just found the solution here
After following the first part through I was able to log in fine... It has the username but for some reason does not accept the original installation password. Strange. Anyways, gonna play with this new OS for a bit.
