I've always managed to su - before, worked a treat. Today I had a mishap and had to boot with a live cd to remove the password for root so I could log back in
When I rebooted normally I logged in as root and reset the password, worked all fine. Now when I'm not running X i can log into root no worries but in fluxbox using aterm, s- or su root gives me access denied. I know the pssword is right because it works outside of X.
Any ideas? Ta
