What is the default root password for live environment?

Hi there!

I just installed Endeavour yesterday and am loving it so far, but I’ve already managed to break my setup. :grin: I installed every desktop environment and window manager available, in the interest of trying each and figuring out what I like best. Unfortunately, most of them failed to load into a usable desktop, and I was forced to hard reset my PC numerous times. Now I am receiving “error : Failed to start file system check on /dev/disk/by-uuid/…” errors at boot, and don’t even make it to whatever login manager I was trying out.

I’ve done some research and believe I just need to run a file system check on the root partition, so I’ve booted into the live environment to take care of that. However, now I’m stuck because I need root permissions to run the command, and I’ve been unable to guess or find the default root password. Can anyone help me out with this?

Thank you,
Stephen

Wow, that was easy. :smile: Thank you!

There is no password needed, use sudo before the command you want to run it sudo su to change the current terminal to root user…
