Re: (ABSOLUTE newbie ask)myhost login after instalation

Isn't 'myhost' your computer's name? Have you set up a user? If yes, try to log in using his login and password. If you have just root, use his password https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be … t_password

Re: (ABSOLUTE newbie ask)myhost login after instalation

You need to login as root (using the password you gave the installer) or user if you've created one.

"myhost" is just the name of the computer, it doesn't mean anything  unless you want to network between computers. You can name it anything, mine is Powerslave for example

Re: (ABSOLUTE newbie ask)myhost login after instalation

There's a part when you must put a root password when do an arch installation. Just login using root password.

Myhost login : root
Password : yourpassword

Just read the installation step by step carefully. If you didn't fill any password on installation, just put 'root' in myhost login. Also all your answer is inside wiki.

There's no GUI by default, you can install one (or more ;P) and configure it yourself. You need to install some packages before 'startx' will work.

Re: (ABSOLUTE newbie ask)myhost login after instalation

Seriously...   read the wiki.   The link to the beginners guide was given above.

If you run into an issue that is not solved there, then ask here.

Re: (ABSOLUTE newbie ask)myhost login after instalation

tembak27, as people mentioned above, you need to start reading the Beginner's Guide very carefully, and follow the steps and advice given there. Failing to do your part and instead opening forum threads for questions that are literally explained in the wiki, will result in the immediate closure of those threads.

Closed.
