What's your distro?

I fixed this in Slack 10 when I added my user account to 'disk' group.

That'll do ^.

Open your /etc/group file. Find the line disk and add your username behind it. Save and you should be able to do it.

so i have read a few of this characters post, i really think he is playing some game he thinks is funny.

playing dumb....

Ask your questions in a logical manner, not smart remarks, and you shall receive solutions that will benefit you...


but if i must i will try to help you.

open up the a terminal, or konsole.

simply type the command: su

the terminal will prompt you for a password: enter your root id password.

This will allow root access while in that terminal.

Also, you may login as root. During your initial boot, just as in Windows XP, you will be promted for a user name and password. Most Unix based systems have what is called a 'root' account.

Simply for the user name type: root

And in the next field enter the root accounts password (which you should have entered during the installation).

Think of it this way root = administrator in windows.

Same idea sort of...

If you really want to learn, its not that hard, take your time...

Even if you do not want to learn, SuSE is very intuative. It may not look exactly like windows, or even act like windows, but it works very similar if not better.

No when you get the login screen from xdm or kdm or gdm whatever you're running. The screen you normally have to login with your normal username

where you normally type omega replace that with the word root on the login screen. where you type your password place the password you use to login to linux.
