Log in and first steps

In the past the username was pi and the password Raspberry (or if keyboard layout not matches the default US keyboard layout raspberrz might work).

Since this is obvious a security issue the new Raspberry PI OS asks for a username and password.

sudo Raspberry-config (or what will be popping up on fist boot) adjusts the important settings


Just change the password once you are convinced the keyboard layout is correct. If a disaster happens delete the pi users password hash in /etc/shadow to reset the password.

To run commands as root: sudo <command>

sudo su changes to the root console and after this entering sudo is no more required. This is convenient when use it with tab completion as for commands like cat /etc/wireguard/publickey but it has a disaster potential so use it with care.
