I think it's encrypted. No way to su to root, until you switch to virtual terminal #1 which is already auto logged into root, and change the password using "passwd" or "passwd root" at the prompt. Once the password is changed, you can then login into an Xorg initiated terminal using "su".

Granted, I think it's a little paranoid and ridiculous hassling with encrypting root passwords.

NO need to go into vt1 to change the root password. You can just open a terminal on the desktop and type
Code:
sudo su - && passwd

mmm... maybe something should echo this to console/stdout after boot. ;-) (ie. /etc/issue, similar to what SystemRescueCD does with startx instructions on console.)

Hi all,

maybe I'm too late, but probably it's helpful for somebody, so I'm posting this anyway...

I've tried to install the DVD persistently on an USB stick, with persistent home and a persistent aufs root overlay so that every change gets saved.
Unfortunately the "persistent" boot option is gone in this livedvd version. But I remembered that there was a cdupdate function in genkernel which I abused shamelessly now! :P

Just create a second partition on the stick and copy the dvd content to the first partition.
Write the bootloader and format the second partition with an FS of your choice.
Create a folder called home and one called aufs on the second partition.
Copy the /home/gentoo folder of the livesystem to the newly created home.
Now create a file called cdupdate.sh on the root of the first partition and chmod +x it:
Code:

mkdir /newroot/mnt/stickp2
DISK=`mount | grep /dev/sd | cut -f1 -d "1"`
mount ${DISK}2 /newroot/mnt/stickp2
mount -o bind /newroot/mnt/stickp2/home /newroot/home
mount -t aufs -o remount,mod:/newroot/mnt/overlay=rr aufs /newroot
mount -t aufs -o rw,remount,ins:0:/newroot/mnt/stickp2/aufs=rw aufs /newroot


Thats it! 8)

@nativemad very nice but this would require work on the user end. I want to eventually get persistency going back on livedvd but with dmsnapshot instead of aufs. thanks again for this tip which I will test on my end. \o/

enjoy ;)

Unofficial torrents are cool but please check the .DIGEST file from the official source before trusting this. − JRG
