Lenny the Binoculars:

In case any one is curious:

Where do these codenames come from?

So far they have been characters taken from the movie "Toy Story" by Pixar.

buzz (Buzz Lightyear) was the spaceman,

rex was the tyrannosaurus,

bo (Bo Peep) was the girl who took care of the sheep,

hamm was the piggy bank,

slink (Slinky Dog (R)) was the toy dog,

potato was, of course, Mr. Potato (R),

woody was the cowboy,

sarge was the sergeant of the Green Plastic Army Men,

etch was the toy blackboard (Etch-a-Sketch (R)).

sid was the boy next door who destroyed toys.

A little off-topic, but craigevil, your signature is just funny:

Ubuntu- an ancient African word for "can't configure Debian"

:lol:

I'd change that sig from "can't configure Debian" to don't want to config Debian, as you might guess I'm a *ubuntu user anyway its 6 of one half a dozen of the other to me.

Help! I don't remember my login and password

Postby colinl22 » 2006-11-19 04:03

I JUST installed Debian for the first time and now I'll booting my computer to run for the first time and it's asking for my login and password. I know my password I created as an admin, but what is my login name? The name I created for the computer when setting up the admin right?

Anyway, I can't log in! How do I reset this thing!?!?!?!? Please help.It keeps saying my debian login is incorrect.

Moderator edit: Removed commercial link.

The username of the admin is always "root". If you created a normal user account during the installation, log in with that. If not, log in as "root" with the admin password and create a normal user account at the command line with "adduser colinl22" or whatever username you want.

Edit: Did I just answer to an annoing spammer? We need an option to disable signatures.

Thank you for root

Postby colinl22 » 2006-11-19 07:28

Thanks for the reply , I logged in with root. Now I am at the prompt, it there anything like a graphical desktop look I can install like the windows desktop? I saw this in the insall saying to click on what you want to install and then hit enter. Well I actually hit enter when I was trying to select the desktop and a few other things I was hoping to install so I think I ended up installing nothing but a bare basic Debian OS.

How do I install other parts of the programs I have on a CD? I am at the prompt waiting for the next step.
