joste Posted April 12, 2008 Report Share Posted April 12, 2008 Hmmm, just to add to tghe general fray.... Since when have root logins not been allowed? It's not an option in the graphical login but if you use a text/commeand prompt login it still works. I used to like it on Mandrake when you did log in as root and ran X that the default theme was RED, just to remind you, this seems to have gone. If I am doing any kind of troubleshooting/admin work I have a terminal open where the first thing I did was run su - I can easily run anything with root priveledges from there, why bother logging in as root? You can log in as root - if you know what you're doing - if you don't know what you're doing, you shouldn't be logginig in as root. I thinkit a very sensible decision.
