Default username and password for Cinnamon

After booting into Rocky Linux 9 Live Cinnamon, I’m presented with a login screen.

I can’t find a default username and password anywhere on the web or this forum.

I’ve tried liveuser, rocky, rockylinux, root, none of these seem to work.

The cinnamon live ISO should be automatically logging you in, just as the other live images do, as there is no password. It’s simply liveuser as the user and that’s it.

Hmmm, weird. When using “Workstation” I’m given a “Create User” mini walkthrough. With Cinnamon, I’m only given a login window and liveuser isn’t working.

I’m trying to PXE boot these images, so maybe there’s something I’m not configuring properly.

Thank you.

It may be possible you have something misconfigured. Here’s what I used in my PXE env and was able to boot to the desktop.

  menuentry 'Boot Rocky Linux 9 (Cinnamon)' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
    echo "Loading Rocky Linux 9 kernel..."
    linux rocky-9-x86_64/vmlinuz ip=dhcp root=live:
    initrd rocky-9-x86_64/initrd.img

I would ensure that you are using and root=live:... to an http path like above to the squashfs from the ISO.
