When I try to just hit enter as my password it says it's incorrect. What do I type for no password?
What are you trying to do? Get to root?
You should use a password. Change your account so you have one, then type it in. If you're trying to sudo something, I don't think sudo even allows 'null' passwords.
Yeah I'm trying to sudo. There's so little on this machine that a password would be more annoying than helpful.
It's asking for your administrator password, which you should have set
I am the admin. I left it blank at installation.
Considering you can't sudo with a null password, I'm inclined to disagree Even to edit the sudoers file so a password isn't required requires an initial password.
I'd have to input a password quite regularly if I had set one up initially.
On this one occasion, I'll create a password, use it to sudo, and then remove it again.
Much more convenient.
Thanks for the help people.
Why not just create a root account (passworded) and su for stuff you need to do?
