You have to boot from the live image of Solus, open a terminal, then you have to mount your filesystem (only execute instruction of this paragraph, don't do the whole page).

Then execute the below commands, do not forget to replace <your login> with the correct value

Code: Select all

sudo chroot /target
sudo passwd <your login>
sudo reboot
