    IM stumped obviously


    I Have been advised to manually edit the files that i need so i can setup my login manager. THat was in another topic i made, which should still be in the first place. However when i go to edit kmgr or whatever it is so i can change the default autologin as root to true, it says it cannot write to disc, and im not sure what the hell is going on. IT's not letting me do it says either access is denied, or not enough disk space. WHich is crazy coz i know have lot of gigs left..Im stumped. ANd i cant change the access rights because well its only a link.

    SO what do i do what happens now?

    If I cant get access to change this file, i wont b able to properly setup my system. which is a bugger.

    You have to edit it as root.

    Search through the K menu, there is an option to "Save Knoppix Configuration"
