    Using Rawhide Minimal Spin

    I've been using fedora for a while, but not rawhide. I'm looking to get some of the IoT stuff working, so I pulled down a rawhide minimal spin (Fedora-Minimal-Rawhide-20180802.n.0.aarch64.raw.xz), about a month ago. I know that I should try a newer one, but the cycle time is quite long so I just want to check what really stupid thing I'm doing.

    I can convert this to the raw disk image and spin up a vm under virt-manager/qemu on Fedora 27. After ~25 minutes, the box is up and running with a login prompt. That's good. Shows that the image works. I'm jolly pleased to see a text interface. But, as this image was pre-built, I cannot work out or set up a user login.

    I'm assuming that root login is turned off by now.

    Is there a default username/pwd?

    ps sorry for such a naive question.

    Try
    Code:
    sudo bash
    My guess would be that root password is random. Occe you are in root bash, just change it using passwd.

    Only a guess.

    lol. If I had a bash prompt, I'd be away. I've only got `Login:`
