Unable to login to GUI

Hi everone,
I´m trying to setup ipfire on a raspberry pi 4b.

First I copied the core183 with the raspberry pi imager v1.8.5 to the sd-card and changed the serial-console to “off”.
Since I was still unable to boot I followed these steps: Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.5 - error -5 whilst initialising SD card - #8 by wiesel

Finally I got into the setup. With this done I was asked to enter passwords for admin and root.
I tried several pw´s (even 1234), but I´m still unable to log in as admin(!).

On the other hand I´m able to log in as root, no problem.

Any suggestions?
Thx in advance.

Hallo @mustrum

Welcome to the IPFire community.

I suspect that you are trying to use the admin user & password from the console. This will not work.

The admin user is specifically for logging in to the Web User Interface (WUI) via your browser and not via the console.
The root user is only for logging in via the console and not via the WUI.

See the wiki on the passwords.
