Raspberry Pi 2 B Fedora-LXDE root password

Sun Mar 22, 2015 5:33 pm

I want to use Pi2B-Fedora-LXDE-armhfp-21-5-20150301-1-sda.raw.xz
for my Raspberry Pi 2 B.
I downloaded it from here:
http://www.digitaldreamtime.co.uk/image ... /20150301/
I prepaired micro SD card and started up my Raspberry.
Everything goes well till the graphic UI. I dont know the user/password.
I tried these ones:
root/raspberrypi
root/fedora
root/fidora
pi/raspberry

Does anybody know the right user/password?
Thank you in advance.

I thought the user and password are set by you during the firstboot installation process...... If you don't remember it then I think you need to install again.
You should probably ask in the Fedora sub forum below.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

But I did not set any password during the installation process...

Then you should go back to the download site and look or ask there for instructions.
Note the link in your OP does not work.

I tried the KDE image yesterday and root/fidora did the trick. IDK why it would be different on the other images :?:

Link in the Pidora forum says that a default PW is now set to "fidora" to accommodate 'headless' installs via SSH.

I tried the KDE image with the root/fidora successfully too, but the LXDE image without success.
It is curious :o

This'll probably come back to bite me in the butt..... root/fidora should work on all images.

On the gui images you should be able to set the root password to something else via the firstboot gui, assuming you boot with keyboard/monitor attached, but of course you a creating a new non-privileged user for regular use, right?

I'll add booting the LXDE image to my TODO list and re-checking root/fidora still works. Maybe I have made a boo-boo somewhere along the way, but I'm sure root/fidora did work on all images.

No.
I did my steps as I wrote on the top.
System first started in the GUI and asked for user and password.
Therefore I was not be able to set root password.
Root/fidora did not work.

OK, something wrong here. Should be walking you through the firstboot gui before asking you to login to X. Did you also try the original image? (I noticed you are using the 20150301 image, not the "released" 20150219 image. (The 20150301 images haven't been promoted to supersede the original 20150219 images, due to lack of testing.)

I tested the 20150219 image, login is OK.
But there is not HDMI digital sound output, only analog via jack.
This is the critical problem for me.

Did you see my reply in the other thread.... Not sure who asked about forcing hdmi audio.... Might not have been you, but anyway....

Have you tried rebooting with "hdmi_drive=2" in /boot config.txt or "amixer -c0 cset numid=3 2" from cmd line?

i install with this tutorial but mouse and keyboard not work and not know the root login password ....


The recent release of the Raspberry Pi 2 uses a newer version of the ARM architecture spec, the ARM Cortex-A7 uses ARMv7 whereas the previous model ARM11 uses ARMv6. The great thing about this is the majority of Linux distros already provide an Image for this architecture. More importantly, Fedora already have images.

There is a slight caveat to the above statement however, that being they won’t just work with the Pi 2. The process isn’t that difficult either just a few steps:

Download the image you require, for this we’ll go with the Fedora 21 minimal – http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/ ... sda.raw.xz
Flash the image to an SD card xzcat Fedora-Minimal-armhfp-21-5-sda.raw.xz |dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M
Make sure the card is unmounted
fdisk the card:
remove partition 1
add a new partition where the old partition 1 was, with type B (FAT32)
write and exit
mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1
Clone the Pi firmware repository – git clone https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware.git
Mount the card again
mkdir /mnt/sdcard
mount /dev/mmcblk0p3 /mnt/sdcard
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard/boot
Copy the contents of the boot directory from the repository you just cloned to the new boot directory and the kernel modules to the lib/modules directory on the main root partition
cp -r firmware/boot/* /mnt/sdcard/boot/
cp -r firmware/modules/3.18.7-v7+/* /mnt/sdcard/lib/modules/
Edit the fstab file to reflect the new UUID of the partition and change from being an ext to a vfat type
blkid /dev/mmcblk0p1 – this will give the UUID of the partition
vi /mnt/sdcard/etc/fstab and edit the line which contains /boot to contain the above info
Create a /mnt/sdcard/boot/cmdline.txt file containing the following:

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait

Create a /mnt/sdcard/boot/config.txt file containing the following:
#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.
arm_freq=700# NOOBS Auto-generated Settings:
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
config_hdmi_boost=4
overscan_left=24
overscan_right=24
overscan_top=16
overscan_bottom=16
disable_overscan=0
core_freq=250
sdram_freq=400
over_voltage=0
save and close any open files on the sd card then unmount and ensure all writes are complete
umount /mnt/sdcard/boot
umount /mnt/sdcard
sync
You should now be able to remove the SD card from your PC and boot it in your new shiny Raspberry Pi 2

Return to “Pidora / Fedora”
