vector 5.8 soho live cd: cant log in
« on: August 02, 2007, 02:33:01 pm »
I just downloaded the file and burned it to a cd. When i  put in a user name and password it accepts nothing i have tried. Is there a default one which will allow me to log in ? I tried  demo , root , vectorlinux etc. None work

   I know its dumb but i cant get in so how am i supposed to evaluate the flavor...

 Thanks

There are 2 users:

user             password

  vl                  vector
 
  root               vector

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

Thanks very much for the info. Looks like a very interesting flavor of linux. I"m just getting started with linux and  so far have taken a look at Mempis and also at Ubuntu/Kubuntu  (the latter two wont even fully boot up on my Dell E1505).

This one did with no trouble at all. Now well take a look and i HOPE that wifi  is easier to connect in Vector than on some other flavors.  On a lot  of them  its a total  mess/disaster.

Hi vajohn1308, VL will be faster than those distros, and well, I think will run really fast on your nice dell. Easuter wrote a great howto for wireless, may be you want to take a look:

Feel free to come to the forum with questions if you need to.
Enjoy the trip
