Lack of permissions
I just made the switch to FreeBSD about two weeks ago so be patient, I'm a newbie. This is probably a stupid question though I couldn't find it referenced anywhere on google.
I have a problem with permissions. I lack the permisions to do nearly everything while I'm in KDE while I'm logged in as the root/super user. I can't even mount drives or change my power management options. I do have more control from the shell but I still lack the permissions to do alot of stuff. Today, while stumbling around in KDE trying to change my laptops powermanagement a help box popped up telling me I'm all screwed because I was logged in as root and didn't have the required permissions to change it.
I just assumed all along that the root user in BSD is the same as the root user in Linux where you have unlimited administrative control over the box??? Is this the case or am I just lost? How do I get my permissions set straight because as things stand now I have no administrative power over my laptop even when logged in as root.
Thanks in advance for any help.
