Hi

I have tried the instructions to enable root login wiht GDM Instructions i followed is as follows

System -> Administration -> Login Screen Setup
Login Screen Setup
Security Tab -> Options -> Allow root to login with GDM (Checked)

I checked it but still it says either your username is incorrect or the password.

Any piece of advice???
