pclinux login problem?

Postby 1slipperyfish » Thu May 19, 2005 8:44 pm

i have a "friend" who was using pclinux live but didn't install it but forgot to take note of the passwords for root and guest :? then installed the mandriva distro(mistake nowhere near as good)
is there any way to reset the passwords if you go into console login?
thanks for your time

Hi
The passwords for PCLinuxOS are:
Guest = guest
Root = root
I hope the helps.

You can of course change both passwords if you install it!
