Mandrake 10.1 - log on as root?
Just type as user's name root and then your password.
If this fails, I don't know why can something like this happen, try logging in from console, root as linux login and then type startx to start the gui.
Re: Can't login as root
You can just type `who am i` from a terminal console ie:
$ who am i
# who am i
The above mentioned options, is a clue to the permission you may hold as a standard user or the root user. Option 2 with the # prompt, normally indicates you are currently logged in with root privilege.
I hope this is of help.
You see, Mandrake only allows a drop-down list of users and does not let you type in Root as a user. Where do you change the Init Runlevel for start-up, to bring me into command prompt at startup?
