I recently used Harsh's mkusb instructions to create a persistent live USB. The default user for this live USB is named
ubuntu with a default password
of blank. I try to change user
ubuntu's password via:
sudo passwd ubuntu
Then I enter the new password. The next time I reboot the live USB system the password defualts back to
blank. The password I entered during
sudo passwd ubuntu gets lost to the ether.
What happened to my password and how do I get it to remain permanent for this persistent live USB?
