[aSkkk] LoGin LinUx

i have a probem with my suse 10..
2 days ago before i log in to suse 10.. linux asked me which one do i want to choose : user or root...
and right now...
my linux suse didnt ask anything about that...

Probably you have enabled the option in KDE to allow autmatic user logging. Go to KControl Center and disable automatic user logging.

But then, everybody knows that it's bad practice to run Linux (specially
the GUI) with root privileges.

What Tink said!

[insert tongue-in-cheek emoticon here] Yes, but if I told you, I'd have to kill you.

Seriously, instead of logging in as root, use a root Konsole or kdesu. (I'm assuming you're using SuSE's default KDE.) Furthermore, KDE is good about asking for the root password when you are doing admin tasks.

Save root logins for tty's.
