Command to Login as Root


What is the command to login as root via Konsole? I'm using Suse 9.3

I tried login root but it says the operation isn't permitted.

You can use "su -", or simply "su".

'su -' is a closer emulation of an actual login: it executes the root profiles and bash rc scripts, as well as setting a proper root environemnt (root's PATH, most notably).
