What is the password for the root user?

Hi,

It depends on what image you are using.  The best ones are on the pine64.pro page here: https://www.pine64.pro/downloads/

All of these list the default userid and password.  

If you are not using those builds then I am not entirely sure.  I would try "debian" and "password"

You haven't said which system are you using and what excatlyyou need it for. I think that there is no root password. You have to set it up yourself "sudo passwd root". If you want more help next time please provide more informations.

Hi,

Sorry, I was confused. The root password is a random thing. You can change it by logging in as the the "debian" user and using "sudo passwd" to change the root. In practice, I have found that is easier (and safer) to work as the debian user and runn sommands as root by running "sudo <command>".
