On Passwords

After running live CD’s or installing Ubuntu and openSolaris several times, I keep on forgetting the default passwords for the default user and or root user.

openSolaris (2008.11 Live)

  • root – opensolaris
  • jack – jack


  • Runningthe LiveCD does not require login.
  • The root account is not activated after installation. Better read this article on root and sudo (link)

Remark: After installation the passwords are your own business. But there are ways to reset a passwords (at least in Ubuntu, see link)
