RE: root login



umm...

starting in level 5 doesn't prevent root from running. if you're running f10, you're going to have to edit the gdm pam file. (don't have the article at my fingers right now...)

appparently f10, has modified the default behavior to restrict you from logging in as the "root" user. 

if you're using f9, get back to us...

peace

i normally do not reply to 'text/html' post, but this time i am making
and exception. [see guidelines link at bottom line of post]

i will guess that you are booting run 'level 5', so open a terminal,
su to root.

change to /etc directory and edit inittab and change;

'id:5:initdefault:' to 'id:3:initdefault:'

reboot and log in as root.

note: reply again in 'text/html' and i will not reply.



peace out.
