I downloaded the ubuntu 16.04.1 server via berryboot on a raspberry pi 3 and booted it up. The default login is ubuntu/ubuntu but whenever I try this I get "Incorrect login". Any help?

  • I don't know what BerryBoot does, but this is an old version of the server. WHY would anyone want to use BerryBoot for a server? – Milliways Jun 10 '17 at 11:20
  • Because I am running 3 OSes on my Pi. Arch, Ubuntu Mate and this server. I didn't find a way to do this with NOOBS or as easy with an other method. @Milliways – FreeLine Jun 10 '17 at 11:24
  • I can understand multi booting of OS, but a server that isn't there seems futile. – Milliways Jun 10 '17 at 11:26
  • I don't understand what you are trying to say. :/ @Milliways – FreeLine Jun 10 '17 at 11:35

I'm using this: ubuntu-16.04-preinstalled-server-armhf + raspi3 And when I start for the first time I ask for login, I put ubuntu / ubuntu and it asks me to write the new password. Once typed, it shows me the login again but ignores the new password. If I start again with ubuntu / ubuntu it asks me for the new password ...

  • I do not know the reason, but I connected by SSH from another PC and if I could do the password change without any problems. – Paco Cubel Jun 16 '17 at 17:02
  • If you have additional information, edit and add it to the question and not in comments, – Greenonline Jun 17 '17 at 12:38
  • The point of using berryboot is having multiple OSes.. This makes me have one. – FreeLine Jun 17 '17 at 18:29

Ubuntu can sometimes use a default login of:

login name: ubuntu

password blank

But usually you won't see that unless running from a LiveCD.

Full installations ask you to set up a user.

Then while logged in as that user you can set the root password:

sudo passwd root
