What are the passwords for the livecd's /livedvd's?
« on: May 16, 2007, 09:31:33 am »
There are 2 users:
userpassword
vlvector
rootvector

This info is also somewhere on the livecd / livedvd, but is often missed.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

downloaded SuperVL 5.8, the logins are not on the DVD and the logins provided here do not work.

4 Gig for nothing, thanks

I just installed VL Soho 5.8 on my laptop and the vl/vector password worked fine. I haven't tried logging in as root yet.

The Super-VL livecd is a project from the guys @ http://supergamer.org/ .
It is NOT an official VL release, questions about it should go to the supergamer forum instead. That being said, I searched their forum a little and found this:

userpassword
guestguest
rootroot

New Login info for Vector Live 7.0 BETA1 ( announced at http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=13726.0 ):

- User vl has been changed to vector   

- User name for root account is still root 

- Password for both accounts is now blank: leave the field empty and hit enter

(For security, whenever using a live CD, it is advised to change the default passwords immediately after logging-in. To do this, enter the command passwd into a terminal. To change the root password, su first)
