jessie user/password

Sun Apr 17, 2016 10:27 pm

Hi, I have OS Jessie on my raspberry pi. when boots up, it won't ask me for user and PW. after I did "sudo get-apt update" then reboot. it ask me user & PW. I tried user: pi, PW: raspberry. it tell me incorrect.

I wonder why after update then ask user/PW, and what are they?

thanks

Did you install Raspbian using Noobs or did you use the image file?

If you used an image then you could be running out of disk space.
Did you expand the filesystem after installation?

If it was set for auto login prior to update, then required user login after update, and you did not uncheck the box in raspi-config, then something is wrong.

You may need to restore.

A: I download Jessie from raspberrypi.org and burn it on Mini SD card using Win32DiskImager.

If you used an image then you could be running out of disk space.

A: I check the Mini SD, used ~20MB, and 40MB free

Did you expand the filesystem after installation?
A: how to ? I don't think I did. min SD contains overlays folder and some .dtb and other files in root folder.

When you install the standalone image (not NOOBS) then as soon as possible (preferably first boot), you must expand the filesystem and reboot BEFORE doing ANYTHING else. Do not do any updates or installations until after this is done.
Use the first option in the config tool [Menu] --> [Preferences] --> [Raspberry pi configuration]

-OR- from LXTerminal command prompt:

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
option 1.

You will need to write the image again with Win32diskimager then do the above.

thanks for reply.
IF you uncheck the box for AUTO LOGIN "login as User Pi" in Raspberry Pi Config, and have NOT changed the default password, it will then prompt you for the username (pi) and password (raspberry) at startup.

If you did not stop autlogin, and you did not change the default password, and you are being prompted for them at startup greet screen, and the defaults do not work, then something may be corrupted.

There is no other password for user 'pi' to try.

Go back and read my post I highlighted how to expand.
The RPi will work fine without expanding until you do an upgrade or attempt to install new software. The un expanded filesystem is only 4G and Raspbian takes up almost all of that leaving only ~115MB to spare...... So you will run out of disk space very quickly. If you run out of disk space during an update then the OS will be trashed and you will have to start again (Win32diskimager).

Just go back to klrick's post: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=144905&view=unread#p955428
and follow his instructions to expand the filesystem.
