Root


Hey,

I;m just wondering about how you can put Root login visible on the Login Menu.

Someone could tell me?

Thanks
Dexter

People don't usually log in as root. They use "su" to become root when necessary. Which login menu are you talking about? Maybe there's some documentation for it somewhere that will tell you how to do that (if you really want to).

We need to know which "login page" you're talking about. My login is a text console where I type in the user name. What distribution are you using?

i think it's an option in the mandrakce control center, but as people have already said you should not do this. just su to root as needed.

Dexter, what GUI do you use, KDE or Gnome? For KDE go to the control center -> system -> login-manager -> users. Until I am mistaken, here is the place to get root displayed. Gnome and the others I don't know, search for the configuration file of gdm and have a look at that. Might be there are easier ways, but I don't use Gnome.
