Hello,

downloaded newest image for testing of Bugs cause old rasbian is unable to update all files(sbin).
I get asket for root shell password, it not "raspberry" "toor" or "".
Now i get asked for a password at startup?!

WTF.

I want the same like on wheezy, never asked for a password!

And another thing, if i start Dolphin/Kwrite as root all images are missing. Google says something from a Env Variable thats set for "pi" but not for "root".
No solution for that works. Settings are too not saved.

Then there seems font anti-aliasing how to switch this off?

Your download appears to be corrupt or your SD card is bad.

downloaded newest image

In the same vein as @klricks...

This does not sound like the expected behaviour of the official Raspberry Pi Foundation Raspbian Stretch Operating System.

From where did you download this image?

The official source is here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/


Or have you made some change to the configuration of the system after its initial installation?

Its official(CRC checked cause its zip). yes of course i tryed to get a root shell.
Now i downloaded Jessi to check if its too so buggy.
No changes to the origial Jessi image, always reproduceable:
1. Make the Taskbar showing you "Root Terminal".
2. Click on "Root Terminal"
you get a a requester "Enter the administrative password", empty, raspberry or toor dont work. You dont get into root shell.

Dolphin works at least with jessi

There is no password for root by default.
Your system works fine.
Just type:

sudo su

if you want a root shell (for some weird and risky reason).

I have never had any need to try to start a Root Terminal from the taskbar on any version of Raspbian, so I can't comment on whether this is broken or buggy.

Maybe there are other ways to accomplish the unspecified task you are undertaking?

The only password Raspbian expects you to use is the one for the pi userid. The default value is "raspberry", the GUI pops-up a panel insisting you change it on first boot.

When asked for the "administrative password" use your current password for the pi userid.

Its not fine if "Root Terminal" can startet&used in wheezy but doesnt work in jessi/stretch.
If it ask a password, for a user that has no password set, its a bug.
I know about sudo su.
If i tell you that you have to ask first everytime you leave your house would you do it? Or would you feel like a slave?
Typing everytime sudo su is the second for me.

I have dont set a password for user "pi" and i dont want do that.

See! I didn't have to give a password to do that ....

It would be better for obvious safety reasons if I did have to.
