View Full Version : [ubuntu] Login help?

March 9th, 2010, 07:14 PM
I am new to Ubuntu. I just installed Server 9.04 and get a command line login prompt from what seems like the root level. I remember the user name and password I created based on the installation suggestion but it doesn't work, the username and password are case sensitive just like a windows initial install. The response is "Login incorrect". I believe that I made all of the intelligent choices during the installation. The installation is on a system with dual P3 Intel processors. The install was successful. I am not new to computers, networks nor servers.What do I do?

Perhaps you have or had the CAPSLOCK key on?
To bypass the root login any other way at this point would be to defeat its purpose. If you do not have the root username and password you might have to reinstall.
