Need help, when I try to type my password in super user mode consoll there is no respond. Nothing happened, I can not type in any word at all. My system is Suse 9.1 It looks like there is no connection to root. I have not this problem when I am logged in as root.

is it when you click on yast, and a box, pops up here, i had this problem, i found if you run sax2, at user level, it create and .Xauth files that normally makes yast2 work.

If you type in a terminal su
then the password you will know that root works.
