Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just downloaded the ISO for Ubuntu 10.10 and burned it to CD. When I click Try Ubuntu, it starts up and then asks for Login info. I couldn't find anything on the website (though I didn't search very hard). Does anyone know what it is.

Edit: If I must ask the obvious question, then what is the username and password?

Yes, in some strange cases it may ask you for the login (which is a bug). But if it does, try user "ubuntu" and password "ubuntu", or user "ubuntu" and no password (note that both the login and password are case-sensitive). –  Rafał Cieślak Mar 20 '11 at 11:15
    
i had that problem in earlier versions too and the info is what rafalcieslak said –  David Rando May 21 '11 at 1:04
    
@rafalcieslak: why do not add it as an answer? –  enzotib Jun 30 '11 at 18:33

Yes, in some strange cases it may ask you for the login (which is a bug).

But if it does, try using:

user: ubuntu, password: ubuntu

or

user: ubuntu, password: (blank password)

(note that both the login and password are case-sensitive).

And it has no password and is set to automatically log in. –  psusi Feb 17 '11 at 20:52

I would try redownloading (or checking the md5 sum) and burning the iso again.
