Root password error
Posted on 2000-02-14
I'm new to the Linux world, so I'll try to explain as far as I know. Basically, I've installed RHL 6.1, my X-Server started of with a blank screen. I guessed it could be my graphic card. I downloaded the linux driver from Windows 98 and this what I did. Restarted my PC, at the LILO boot: I typed "linux single" so that it won't go into the X-server. I wanted to install those VGA linux drivers but I need the root user access. The problem is when I typed the password for the root access, it says "Login incorrect". I'm pretty sure of the root password that I created during the installation. What's going on?
nb: I'm not familiar with UNIX commands.
