Linux Lite 3.0 asks for login password

(1/5) > >>

Jerry:
I have had a number of emails to me explaining that some folks are being asked for login credentials when booting the live image of Linux Lite 3.0

I am going to spend the day exploring this issue and will edit and update this post with my findings.

In the meantime, I have updated the Linux Lite 3.0 Release Announcement with the appropriate image writing software recommendations. These will also appear on the main Linux Lite 3.0 website. The Help Manual already has these suggestions listed.

Jerry:
UPDATE: Most reported issues with Rufus. Yumi and Multiboot don't work (from what has been reported by some users). I have tested both 32bit and 64 bit in both DD and ISO mode with the latest Rufus and I have no problems booting Linux Lite 3.0 Please use the latest version of Rufus https://rufus.akeo.ie/ for testing.

I'll open the thread now for replies from people who are being asked for login credentials in Linux Lite 3.0

If you are having issues, please check the following:

- Have you performed an md5sum check? http://www.winmd5.com/
- What software did you use to write the image?
- Is this on a Desktop computer?
- Is it on a Laptop/Ultrabook/Netbook with the power plugged into mains, or running on battery?
- Are you using a DVD or USB?
- Is the login screen asking for a password during boot up, or has the computer booted to the desktop in live mode, and then locked?
- Are you starting the install immediately after live boot, or are you letting the pc go into screen-lock mode, and then trying an install?
- If you are being asked for login credentials, which of these user/password combinations worked when you tried to login linux and or ubuntu ?
- Where did you download the ISO from (please provide a link)

Please answer ALL of these questions in your replies.

Testing is encouraged from existing community members.

Thank you:)

Sorry.. I booted into the LiveUSB, all was normal. I let the netbook/laptop sit idle. After about 5 minutes or so the system went to sleep, screen went black. Upon waking the system, moving touchbad/key input - the screen was locked.

To unlock I entered user name "linux" with no password (after 1st attempt stated incorrect did a 2nd time and was returned to the desktop..

I believe there was another post where the user was on a laptop..
I can see where laptops maybe going to sleep especially during install and resulting in a prompt..
