@hamza: "toroot" cheatcode takes you to the password dialog box with root already mentioned in user name. Is it possible for system to boot fully straight to desktop without asking for any password (like it was in slax) ?

@lo-n-behold: please elaborate on your "yes".

Read /porteus/cheatcodes.txt file in the default ISO.

@rnport
please use "toroot" mentioned by guys and upgrade to 32bit rc2 (rc1 still gives you stop at kdm/lxdm).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
