stupid linpus file permissions, no password?
I normally use opensuse 11.2 but my laptop is drying out after a wine-astrophe. bless my visiting father for that one. wanted a netbook anyway, and have linpus lite on it. it sucks, i want eebuntu. alas linpus thinks my eebuntu iso is not to be extracted, copied, touched. it doesn't think my external dvd drive exists, and wouldn't allow it to be burnt anyway. i can't log in as root, no password. anywhere. the whole folder and contents are all set to read and write.
so the questions are 1: what is the standard su and user passwords for acer aspire one on linpus?
2: how do you force mount a cd drive on the command line?
3: how do i change permissions on the command line?
Thanks for your time, linux is, as ever, a learning curve! :dazed:
