+1 for below...
I am new to use this image, may i know the default password for root?
=================================
Image logs good to the log output and console seems to wok fine.
Is there a root password setup? Ssh also accepts password login per default.
(My favourite would be a standard password people can login on the
console, but only allow ssh login via ssh keys. ??)
