you can try login with

Password: you made when you installed the Fedora version

after that you type:

cd /home

when you are in the /home folder type:


the output you will get is the UserName you can try to login to the terminal with.

Be aware that Fedora sometimes sets console language and keyboard layout to US-English, eventhough you had change it to: < insert your selected langauge here > , which works well -- in the GUI only...

This means that you HAVE to KNOW the US-English keyboard-layout in order to enter your password.

If you're talking about the LiveCD - there is no password. Neither for root, nor for liveuser.

This is perfectly your username && password combo you spicified during installation :)

As besser82 has said, it's whatever account details you specified when installing with live usb.

If you have installed from the GNOME desktop live image, then on first boot, you should be met with a login screen. The username for the regular user that you created during installation should be in the middle of a gray screen. You can click on that, and then you'll be prompted for your password.

The above assumes that you did actually create a regular user during install; and that nothing else has gone wrong to prevent your first boot from getting that far, and you aren't just reaching a text console to log in to.
