Logging In As Root In Manrake 10.1?
How do you login as root in Mandrake 10.1? I donít know if this is a glitch in the software or if I am doing something very wrong here. To begin with, Iím switching from Redhat9 to Mandrake 10.1. With redhat, you only need to type in the root name and then the password from the gui interface to login as root. With Mandrake, you get a clickable list of usernames and root is not one of them. I tried logging in from the shell as root and I get an authentication error for root. I know that my password for root is correct because when I login as a user, I can change system settings by typing in the root password which is accepted by the system. Is there something that I am missing here? or is there a glitch with this? I donít want to have to type in the root password every time that I make some kind of change or do an update. If I have to do that, Iíd just assume go back to Redhat. I installed Mandrake as a server. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
