Re: Newbie Installation Problems

If I understand your problem correctly, this might help:

log in with regular user name

(enter root's password)
cat /etc/gdm/gdm.conf

Look through the list for  'AllowRoot=_____'
If it says 'false', run an editor and change
it to 'true'.  Then save.

I am able to install 3.0 successfully from the disk images I've downloaded from Oregon State. However, once installed, the system goes directly into a login screen from which I cannot login into root. How to I get the system to boot in such a way that I can log in as root?
