my red hat 8.0 has a problem that the root account cann't login,I'm sure that the password is correct because I can use su - root,and other user can login without any problem, i remember that i had some services disabled befor this problem occured,Does anyone know how to deal with it?
thank you very much
Some distros purposely disable this ability. You may have thrown a switch that enabled this 'feature'. To 'deal' with it, I'd suggest logging in as a user, then su - 'ing' to do the required task, then exiting.
