That's interesting . . . . I thought Debian didn't allow ssh
connections as root, or was that just for telnet?

Hi, i am new to linux. I installed(let's say so) the latest woody edition of debian and when it starts i can't log in as root in the graphical enviroment.
Can anyone tell me what can i do to permit the root to login?
No solution, but you should be able to (all things being equal ;) run
root X applications from your normal user desktop like...
ssh -X root@localhost programmename
where programmename is the application name. There are only a few admin
applications you will want to run any way. So don't go ssh -X
root@localhost mozilla. That's just asking for trouble :)
