What is the default mysql root password?

Right after installation, postConfigure demands mysql password.

Tried to run mysql from command line: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'

no matter without password or with any "default" password I could think of (i.e. mypassword, Calpont1, e.t.c.)

Is there any default one? Or a way to reset it? Thanks!

Resolved

For some reason mysql.* tables were empty - bug in the installation process?

/* I thought it was because InfiniDB had its own access system */

So, I created root@localhost via --init-file by starting mysqld manually - after that got postConfigure finish successfully!
