Problem to log in OpenSUSE 11.3

Hey All:)

I have installed WMware player on my Win7 pro 32 bit. I have installed OpenSUSE 11.3 with no errors. During The install I need to give full Name which I gave as VN and username as 1 and a password. So far so good. But when I write 1 in the username place and the password I get failed to log in. I would like to know what I am doing wrong.

Big thanks in advance!


Hi Valentin,

That could be something with existing user name restrictions

Basically, as I remember there is only max symbols restriction , which is 16 or in some cases 8, but not a minimum … well it should be “ more than zero symbols” :slight_smile:

At the same time, if you are entering just symbol “1” (no quotes) it may have something to do with the following recommendation, as far as I remember:

“user name starts with a lower case character”

That’s kinda not contradicting … but the “lower case” 88)…

If you want to keep just 1-character name, you can try different – say one “letter”, but not a “digit” in the symbolic interpretation

And then, sure having this in mind it’s better to check with the respective OpenSUSE forum

My regards

Thanks for you reply SiberLynx. I will delete the created OS and do it once more.


This is solved. Thanks for the help SiberLynx
