su, sudo password

Post  fpd on Mon Jan 23, 2012 4:23 pm

Hello Friends of CAINE, Giancarlo, ypso and nannib,

I am booting CAINE 2.5(.0) Live CD.

[my edit]
My md5sum (good):
d20cf2da3815fba99c6cbcc4c196f283 caine2.5.iso
My sha1sum (unknown):
0aa33834f64a1180ef4701f736105fc073cf5bff caine2.5.iso
[/my edit]

What should the root (su, sudo, sudo su) password be? I can not guess it...

I searched the Caine Forum for "password" and "sudo" but only found this unresolved thread:
http://cainelive.aforumfree.com/t16p15-username-password#283

My issue is similar, but it is not the same as the "Username & Password" thread (above).

When using "wifi" (NetworkManager Applet 0.8 ), I am asked for "Unlock Login Keyring... password:" Using "caine" works as the password. Therefore, "caine" seemed to be the "root" password.

When trying to use "Nautilus (as root)", "sudo", "sudo su", I am asked for a password (not username/password). I try: "root", "caine", "Caine", "CAINE", "password", "nautilus", and "<cr>" ... but can not get these applications to allow me to use them. See images below (I hope I posted them correctly).

Thank you for CAINE Linux...

You have not to use sudo su but simply sudo....
e.g. sudo nautilus
that's all Smile
bye

nannib, friend!

Thank you for solving this!

Again, I am using CAINE LiveCD to boot, wifi, surf and type this post... After "sudo nautilus" in terminal to start Nautilus (without asking me for a password), I navigated to my local drive on /media/sdb1 (My Passport USB drive from above), but saw no files or folders - that was because "sdb1" was not mounted (for data security). I did not find "mount" on the drop-down options when I right-mouse-clicked the "sdb1" folder/partition, so I opened a terminal on /media and entered "mount -rw /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1" and can now see my drive partition and all its contents.

Thank you CAINE and friends of CAINE.
