      I’ve just downloaded the latest iso file and burned it to a DVD. I booted the DVD, hoping to install openmamba onto a hard drive. But the process ended with a text screen asking me for a username and password, which, of course, I don’t have. Please supply the default username and password so that I can proceed with the installation. I tried a username of “admin”, and it seemed to accept that. But when then asked for a password, I tried all I could think of and it accepted none of them.

      There are no preset passwords in openmamba, normally when this happens it’s because of a bug in desktop environment startup. You can press CTRL-ALT-F2 to access a console where you can set a password but that won’t fix the problem. The cause of the problem might be visible in /root/.xsession-errors or you can generate a detailed report by running the command openmamba-makereport and then send the output file to for us to examine it. Regards.
