    Default username and password for BackTrack 5

    well I have installed BackTrack 5 on the computer of mine. After booting the computer the KDE prompt was asking for the user name and password. I have already tried with all the well know root but there was no success. Let me know why I am getting the above mentioned issue on the computer of mine. any help to this particular matter would be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

    I think I know something which would be useful for you as far as Default password is concerned. As you boot your computer by using the USB drive or DVD then you will have the default password just before you have type Startx on the computer of yours. so you should try the thing which I have mentioned over here to get the default password for you. I am hoping that it would be useful to you.

    I was having the same problem which you have posted over here. Well I have simply opened a new terminal session on the computer by pressing ALT + F2. Now I have changed the password as root. Also I have added a new user to the system. Once I have done the above mentioned thing I have resolved the login issue. I am hoping that the trick which I have mentioned over here would be useful to you.

    You should try the following thing on the computer of yours.
    • You have to go for BackTrack menu you have to simply select the Debug Mode
    • Now you have to press tab by using BackTrack Debug.
    • You have to edit the boot parameter and then add the Splash value.
