Root password for install - Live edition
« on: July 27, 2012, 01:28:38 am »
I have downloaded the Live edition for install, but when I click on vlinstall, which I presume is the way to install it, it asks for a password.  What is the password ?

I have looked around everywhere but just cannot see it.

Thanks in advance

If you are working with the live version of VL7, the password is blank. Just press enter.

On previous versions, the password was "vector".

Thanks, I will give this a go later on.  I must have tried several different variations, with vector and linux in it without success, except a blank password.

Thanks all.
