Debian - Password required upon launching LIVE CD

December 2016



Issue


I've downloaded Debian LiveCD and upon launching it, it asking me for a root password.

Solution

  • By default, there is not any root password. You can switch to root with sudo -i or set a password for root with sudo passwd.


In the case you are requested a user password: The user password for the live user is 'live'.
