Hello! I have installed Linux Suse 9.2. Everything was going ok for 4-5 month. Yesterday, when I tried to switch user to root, when the root KDE should came up, the YaST Control Center came instead, and I can't log in as root. Don't know what to do!! Please help!!
Sorry for my english!
Thanks in advance!
You probably opened the Yast control center somehow and it asked for the root password in order to give you access. Have you tried logging off and back on as root?
Or can you try opening a terminal and typing
This will not log you in as root, but it will try to switch to the "root" user and use that user's settings.
