RE: root login



nick...

do this...

su - root
password: <whatever it is>

edit /etc/pam.d
vi /etc/pam.d (or use your favorite editor)
look for a line that has:
 user != root (or something like that)
comment out the line, or delete it...

save the file, log out, log back in, end you should be able to access as
root...

you don't need to modify the init file...

Subject: root login


Hi all


Just downloaded F10 and when I try to login as root i get "unable to
authenticate user"

so i logged in as myself and then "su" but each time I want to change system
settings it keeps asking me for the root password

Ive only had a few hours and its already driving me crazy with this
continual requests for the root password.


how do I enable root login
