@babloo

sorry, my mistake, i mean "toor" not "root" as password !

@L30

HDD install:
i select as display name  "aima", user name "aima" and as password "xxxxxxx".root password is selectet as "toor"...

Login as "aima" is no problem, my trouble is to login as "root" !
I can't change the login user "root" with  password "toor", respectively the password "toor" don't work.

Recovery mode login as root and password "toor" works without problems.

thx, aima

By default logging in as root is not allowed in matriux

you have two solutions:

1) login matriux as default user and then you can "su" anytime
2) change the login preferences to enable root login

login as root is very dangerous and not allowed when login as root your system can be damaged, when root is needed disconnect your ethernet or wireless connection give no one access to your system use su instead. Root is only needed when making changes to the system that needs root access but becarefull it s very dangerous.
