I know all the risks associated with root danger login. This is a practice setup at home and if anything happens, I can always re-install the fedora again
it is NOT that
things WILL NOT WORK RIGHT IF YOU DO
Gnome ( ran a root ) will NOT WORK RIGHT
things WILL NOT WORK!
Gnome WILL be broken !
gnome run as root in 12 WILL NOT be able to get root authentication , the pop up window will NOT POP UP !
also there were some VERY bad root login bugs in 12
PLEASE use the current AND SUPPORTED VERSION Fedora 14
